Administrative /‚Äč Biographical history

The council bought the parts of the Basingstoke Canal lying within Surrey in 1976. The restoration of the canal is being led by the Surrey and Hants Canal Society. In 1991 restoration was completed as far as Greywell Tunnel. The canal is managed by the Basingstoke Canal Authority on behalf of the Hampshire and Surrey County Councils. For further information see Edward Paget-Tomlinson's 'The Illustrated History of Canals & River Navigations' and Charles Hadfield's 'The Canals of South and South East England'.

System of arrangement

It has not been possible to ascertain any original structure of record-keeping from the small number of records held for this company. The subfonds has therefore been arranged in chronological order.
