TQ0058 : Woking Town Wharf

taken 19 days ago, near to Woking, Surrey, Great Britain

Woking Town Wharf
Woking Town Wharf
The wharf was opened in May 2019 giving a facility for boaters wishing to visit the attractions of Woking. In addition it acts as a picking up point for trip boats. The Basingstoke Canal is jointly owned by Surrey and Hampshire county councils and operated by the Basingstoke Canal Authority - it is not therefore part of the Canal and River Trust's network. Despite the best efforts of the authority and support from the Basingstoke Canal Society, the impression is of a waterway whose huge potential as a cruising route is under-exploited.
Basingstoke Canal :: SU7451
The Basingstoke Canal can be found in Southern England between the village of Greywell in Hampshire and Woodham in Surrey. It was built between 1788 and 1794 and is 32 miles long with 29 locks. After many years of restoration it's now fully navigable, and connects to the River Wey Navigation, which in turn joins the River Thames LinkExternal link
