New Sit-On Kayaks for 2015

We were excited to take delivery of our new kayaks today. We now have 5 single seater kayaks and 2 twin seater kayaks.

After giving them all a good test we found them to be far more stable than the older style kayaks and much easier to get in and out of!

They all have either built in dry storage to put things like wallets and phones in or bungee straps which can hold dry bags securely. Either way all your precious belongings will now be safe and dry!

Magna Carta Boat Rally

Don't miss this event here at Colt Hill basin on Sunday 24th May 2015. The Basingstoke Canal Authority have put a lot of work into organising this rally and the attractions will include:

Kiosk gets a makeover!

Our ice cream and drinks kiosk has had a good sanding and is ready for painting.
We thought we would give it a bright set of narrowboat colours; green and burgundy.

Recent visitors will have seen the main office undergo a bit of a tranformation too.

Below is the brighter version of the kiosk!

Boats and fallen trees

One of our boats came in handy as a platform for dealing with a fallen tree near Deepcut. BCA workers used the narrowboat to get to the tree which was quickly removed to keep the navigation open, well done guys!

A family of visitors

We had a nice surprise a few days ago when a family of swans decided to use our slipway to take a rest. We didn't charge the usual slippage fee!
