This is a comment from Sven Latham that I inadvertently deleted.I grew up in Gosport and used to ride this route quite regularly. I've often wondered its purpose as the channel is clearly artificial. Wikipedia suggests it was a water supply for meadows, or a navigation. It's a lovely walk from Titchfield to the Nature Reserve and beach at Hill Head, and there are some very nice paths towards the West as well. A welcome break from the urban parts!
Yes it was a canal,if you follow it to the shore you will see the remains of the sea lock . Our home town is Fareham Rich and Sharon ( nb oakapple )
