This canal runs from Basingstoke in Hampshire, South East England, through Surrey to London and was a major transport route in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. Later it fell into disrepair until a volunteer society set to restoring it, with the help of both Hampshire and Surrey Country Councils, and the restoration was completed in the 1990s. It is now described as one of the most beautiful waterways in England (in its own blurb, I must admit!) and since it actually runs across the bottom of my parents' road it's a popular place to go for after-dinner walks, etc!
