Description

The Basingstoke Canal Towpath Trail is 33 miles long from Penny Bridge, Up Nately, to the Basingstoke Canal's junction with the River Wey Navigation at Woodham, Surrey. A permissive tree-lined footpath following the restored 200-year-old canal through the Hampshire and Surrey countryside via woodland, heathland, wetland and pasture. Wildlife has flourished in the canal's clear water, creating Britain's best site for water plants and over 25 species of dragonfly. There are many sights along the way, including Odiham Castle, the Deepcut flight of locks, aqueducts, scenic villages and historic buildings. The canal towpath has been reinstated as far as Up Nately, 3½ miles from Basingstoke. This is currently the limit of the Towpath Trail.
