Garden Open for Charity on Basingstoke Canal - 16th June
Paddle to Old Thatch Cottage
Old Thatch Cottage in Winchfield is the lovely cottage on the Basingstoke Canal with the horse sculpture in the garden. It will be opening to the public several times this year under the National Gardens Scheme, with proceeds going to charity (Sebastian's Action Trust). Kayakers and canoeists are invited to paddle to the garden. It is about a 40 minute paddle from Colt Hill (head left when you get on the water, away from Greywell) and if you arrive thirsty and hungry there will be a selection of refreshments on sale.
