Hants & Berks Junction Canal project

Description of Hants & Berks Junction Canal project: A proposed 13 mile canal from the Kennet & Avon Canal at Newbury to Basingstoke Canal at Old Basing.

History of Hants & Berks Junction Canal project: This connection may well have been part of the original plan for the Basingstoke Canal in 1778 and was suggested in 1793, 1802 and 1810 before it was finally surveyed in 1824. Failed Bills were introduced in 1824 and 1826. The project was dropped in 1829.
