This archive lets you refer to articles previously published in the Southampton Canal Society’s Newsletter. The Society website was first established in May 1999; issues of the Newsletter covering the period from mid-1995 (the earliest copies held in electronic form) have been added. In addition, issues of the Newsletter between January 1990 and mid-1995 have been scanned from paper copies of the Newsletter. The Society was formally closed in March 2022 and the issue for that month was the last.

Please note that those PDF files marked with this dagger symbol † contain scanned images of paper copies of the original Newsletters and, as such, these files cannot be electronically searched for text. It should also be noted that the legibility of these issues is dependent upon the quality/condition of the paper copies used.
The PDF files from the Archive will normally open in the same browser window as this page but this depends upon the set-up of your device (eg computer, tablet or phone). In order to view these files, you need a PDF reader (such as Adobe or Acrobat Reader version 4.0 or later) installed on your device. Alternatively, most modern browsers such as Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Edge already include PDF file readers.
The latest version of Adobe Reader can be obtained free from the Adobe website (opens in new window). On Android or Apple devices this may re-direct you to either Google Play Store or the Apple iTunes Store.
It should be noted that links to websites and e-mail addresses within archived Newsletters are NOT maintained and may no longer be valid.
There is a separate list of meetings that were held from 1990 to the end of 2021.
