Basingstoke canal path, 31 miles, 2 walking days, May 2010
Woodham – Farnborough – Basingstoke (Greywell)
We walked the 31-mile Basingstoke Canal Towpath Trail in May 2010. Ironically, the path stops a few miles short of Basingstoke. The trail starts at Woodham, where the River Wey runs underneath the M25 between junctions 10 and 11, and finishes at a small village called Greywell, 2 miles south of Hook. The towpath is easy attractive walking and is one of the few long-distance paths in the UK that does not need a map.

Hello Ben. Just looking at your new blog of all your walking adventures. Linda and I have been on several sections of some of the UK walks.This one of the Basingstoke canal is of interest. Linda belongs to Brookwood art club and they often set up their easels on the banks of the canal during the summer and find lots of things of interest to paint. In fact the club exhibited at the Royal Surrey Hospital last month and they sold 6 pictures one of which was Linda`s. She was also commissioned to paint another one which is a first for Linda. We have also walked along the canal at Brookwood and Mytchett as in the photos. There are lots more familiar sights in the UK photos of which I will mention later.
