Places around the Basingstoke Canal

Greywell is probably best known for being the tunnel with the bats in it on the Basingstoke Canal. It has a small but picturesque village, with a norman church and a mill. The River Whitewater passes through the village just a short distance away from the tunnel portal

Greywell tunnel is visited by thousands every year, but its not just the tunnel thats a popular attraction!

It is five miles from Greywell to Basingstoke – whether it be by canal or by road!
