"Life & Heritage on the Basingstoke Canal" August 2016

18th June 2016
Saturday 2nd July - Sunday 7th August

This is an exciting time because it marks the culmination of a very interesting community project that my friend and colleague, Rachael Talibart and I, have been working on for the last couple of years.
We have been recording the people who volunteer their time to keep the Basingstoke Canal system in beautiful and safe condition.

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the Basingstoke Canal Society and they will be celebrating with a festival on 6/7th August, in Woking, Surrey, to include a parade of historic narrow boats. Alongside this, The Lightbox is hosting a display to explain the fascinating history of the canal.

A selection of the photographs that Rachael and I have made will be exhibited, showing what goes into keeping these waterways in such good condition...the hard work and camaraderie of a loyal group of volunteers.
