Basingstoke books: History & Heritage

Basingstoke (Images of England)
Basingstoke (Images of England)

By Malcolm Parker. 128 pages.
Publisher: NPI Media Group

Basingstoke has been established for over 1,000 years and yet it is often seen by outsiders as a new town, a town which was barely on the map before its major redevelopment in the 1960s. Yet even by the 1920s the town already considered itself to be the commercial capital of north Hampshire and rarely has it been static in its development and modernisation. This book focuses on that gradual development over the past two centuries with over 200 photographs, maps and images illustrating people and places that have featured and shaped its colourful history. Malcolm Parker is the author of "Ambling Through Hampshire" and has lived in the area for much of the last forty years. Educated in Overton and Basingstoke he has always been fascinated by local history, architecture and topography.

Basingstoke Canal
Basingstoke Canal

By Dieter Jebens. 128 pages.
Publisher: The History Press
The Basingstoke Canal was built towards the end of the great canal mania in the eighteenth century. It was intended to provide a transport route to and from London via the Wey and the Thames, however, the expectations of its promoters were never realised. After this the canal had numerous unsuccessful owners, including the New Basingstoke Canal Company. However, by the late 1960s, the Company was proposing to close the uneconomical navigation and sell off parts for building land. The Surrey & Hampshire Canal Society was formed to campaign for its restoration and persuaded the County Councils to buy it. A partnership with the Canal Society and other voluntary bodies succeeded in reopening the canal in 1991. The Basingstoke Canal has always enjoyed the affection of the local population and still provides a green corridor for the crowded towns of south-east England.
