The council bought the parts of the Basingstoke Canal lying within Hampshire in 1973. 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.

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.
