Basingstoke Canal – Dieter Jebens, Roger Cansdale
Divided into 8 chapters, the book uses archive photos to take the reader on a trip through time from the junction with the Wey Navigation to the terminus in Basingstoke. The photos cover periods of the Canal’s history that go back to Victorian days and show it as a commercial waterway also used as a leisure facility, and then its decline and restoration in the 20th century. It includes a 4 page history of the Canal and maps of its original route and the Canal today. Another must for anyone interested in the Canal.
