Keeping the Basingstoke Canal Alive for the enjoyment of our local communities!
Thank you for visiting The Basingstoke Canal Society Lottery page.
The Basingstoke Canal today is a lovely stretch of water, towpaths and parks, winding its way for 32 miles through North Hampshire and Surrey, and is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) with a unique natural habitat. The Canal provides many leisure and wellbeing benefits, and is enjoyed by thousands of walkers, cyclists, anglers and boaters throughout the year, including those from Hart District.
But this was not always so - fifty years ago the derelict Canal was threatened with abandonment. Founded in 1966, the Society campaigned to restore the Canal as a navigable waterway, and with a mainly volunteer workforce we finally re-opened it in 1991. The Society was supported by the owners Surrey and Hampshire County Councils and neighbouring borough and district councils, including Hart.
The Basingstoke Canal Society has since been determined to keep our local Canal alive for the enjoyment of generations to come. Today the Society has an enthusiastic volunteer force of over 250 and all funds raised by our two trip boat operations benefit the Canal, at a time of tightening council budgets and ever more challenging competition for funding.
We need your help to:
