Visitor Research, Basingstoke Canal

Visitor researchClient: Surrey County Council and Hampshire County Council

The Basingstoke Canal runs for 32 miles from Greywell in Hampshire through to Woodham in Surrey where it joins the Wey Navigation and beyond to the River Thames. It has a continuous tow path and has some 29 locks. The Canal was constructed between 1788 and 1794.

We carried out a module of visitor research among a wide range of users of the Basingstoke Canal, including hard to reach groups such as teenagers and we are also contacting local businesses and landowners. This module of research informed the development of a vision and action plan for the Basingstoke Canal.
