The Basingstoke Canal and Tundry Pond

An easy and pleasant walk through parkland and along a stretch of the Basingstoke Canal, past the attractive Tundry Pond, an extract from walk 667 for the days when four miles is enough.

The walk starts from St Mary's Church at Winchfield – a widespread rural parish that has no real centre – and turns along the towpath of the Basingstoke Canal. It then follows a public footpath across Dogmersfield Park and alongside Tundry Pond, before reaching the canal again and following the towpath back to complete the loop. On this last stretch is the Barley Mow pub.

The history of the area – the canal, the pillboxes, the park, the pond – makes interesting reading to illustrate your walk – see Additional Info'.

This is a great walk. We have done it numerous times and will again tomorrow. This is gentle enough that it is suitable for all fitness levels. Yet it is scenic with a beautiful lake/pond and the canal is lovely with fantastic rhododendrons at the right time of year.
