Brookwood and the Basingstoke Canal

Brookwood and the Basingstoke Canal

A 5.5 mile circular walk starting from Brookwood Station in Surrey. The walk follows the towpath of the Basingstoke canal and then passes through the village of St John's near Woking, cuts across the railway and a golf course before returning to the towpath for the return stretch.

The walk is relatively flat and provides relatively easy walking and navigation. The paths include long sections of the canal towpath (which can be narrow, muddy and overgrown in places) along with pavements, road edges and tarmac paths. There is just one stile (which is quite small and relatively open to allow most dogs to pass through alongside) and you will also need to cross a golf course so take here to avoid the balls flying down the fairways. Approximate time 2 to 2.5 hours.

The walk starts and finishes at Brookwood Station near Woking in Surrey. Parking is available at the pay and display car park at Brookwood Station signed off the A324 (Connaught Road) in Surrey. Payment is taken by debit or credit card. The station is on the London Waterloo to Basingstoke line. Approximate post code GU24 0ER.
