The Basingstoke Canal is a British canal, completed in 1794, built to connect Basingstoke with the River Thames at Weybridge via the Wey Navigation. From Basingstoke, the canal passes through or near Greywell, North Warnborough, Odiham, Dogmersfield, Fleet, Farnborough Airfield, Aldershot, Mytchett, Brookwood, Knaphill and Woking. Its eastern end is at Byfleet, where it connects to the Wey Navigation. This, in turn, leads to the River Thames at Weybridge. Its intended purpose was to allow boats to travel from the docks in East London to Basingstoke.

  • The Basingstoke Canal is a British canal, completed in 1794, built to connect Basingstoke with the River Thames at Weybridge via the Wey Navigation. From Basingstoke, the canal passes through or near Greywell, North Warnborough, Odiham, Dogmersfield, Fleet, Farnborough Airfield, Aldershot, Mytchett, Brookwood, Knaphill and Woking. Its eastern end is at Byfleet, where it connects to the Wey Navigation. This, in turn, leads to the River Thames at Weybridge. Its intended purpose was to allow boats to travel from the docks in East London to Basingstoke. It was never a commercial success and, from 1950, lack of maintenance allowed the canal to become increasingly derelict. After many years of neglect, restoration commenced in 1977 and on 10 May 1991 the canal was reopened as a fully navigable waterway from the River Wey to almost as far as the Greywell Tunnel. However its usage is currently still limited by low water supply and conservation issues. (en)
  • Le canal de Basingstoke est un canal britannique, achevé en 1794, construit pour relier Basingstoke à la Tamise à Weybridge via la voie navigable Wey. De Basingstoke, le canal passe à travers ou à proximité de Greywell, North Warnborough, Odiham, Dogmersfield, Fleet, l'aéroport de Farnborough, Aldershot, Mytchett, Brookwood, et Woking. Son extrémité orientale est à Byfleet, où il se connecte à la voie navigable Wey. Ceci, à son tour, conduit à la Tamise, à Weybridge. Son but était de permettre aux bateaux de relier les quais de l'Est de Londres à Basingstoke. Il n'a jamais été un succès commercial et, à partir de 1950, le manque d'entretien a fait qu'il a été peu à peu abandonné. Après avoir été négligé pendant plusieurs années, sa restauration a débuté en 1977 et le 10 mai 1991, le canal a été rouvert comme voie totalement navigable de la rivière Wey jusqu'à quasiment le tunnel Greywell. Malheureusement, l'approvisionnement insuffisant en eau, des problèmes de financement, et des questions de conservation, ont empêché jusqu'ici le canal de Basingstoke d'atteindre son véritable potentiel et d'être totalement restauré.
