Take a gentle paddle along the Basingstoke Canal as it meanders its way through Hampshire. Starting across the canal from the Galleon boat hire and the Waterwich pub where there is good parking and easy access to the water. Either head West to canals end and explore Odiham Castle, or East through Doggmersfield to Crookham Village. You can hire equipment from Galleon Boat hire and the Basingstoke and Deane Canoe Club paddle here on Saturdays all year round.
