Charity Donation to the “Last 5 Miles” Fundraising Campaign


Although the navigable length of the Basingstoke Canal ends just east of Greywell Tunnel it has always been the long term aim of the Canal Society to restore the remaining 5 miles into Basingstoke town centre.

However, as an initial step, the Canal Society is working with the local authorities to establish a footpath and cycleway which would follow, as closely as possible, the line of the canal from Greywell through Up Nately, Mapledurwell, Hatch and Old Basing to Basingstoke town centre. Much of the former route of the canal remains although it would be necessary to make diversions where the canal line has been built over.

To fund this project we are looking to raise money through donations so that this aim can be realised. You can find out more by clicking here.

You can make a financial donation to the Basingstoke Canal Society to help create the footpath. Please note that you will be making a financial donation to the Society, there is no tangible product attached to this process.

Select an amount you wish to to donate from the list. If you are a UK tax payer and select “Yes” in the Gift Aid box the Society will be able to collect a further 25% of your donation from the Government.

By selecting “Yes” in the Gift Aid box you are agreeing the following:

I am a UK taxpayer and would like the Basingstoke Canal Society to reclaim the tax on all donations I have made in the last four years and for all future gifts of money that I make to be Gift Aid donations. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year then it is my responsibility to pay any difference.

Thank you for your donation.
