The club was originally called Westel Canoe Club and was founded in 1970 by Jeff Simmons. In November 2011, it was decided to change the name of the club from Westel to Hampton Canoe Club. Read a history of the club here.
Bell Hill Recreation Ground
The Club Premises are located at Bell Hill, Hampton, close to the Hampton Ferry.
Coming along the A308 into Hampton, look for The Bell Inn. There is also a pedestrian crossing just by the pub. Almost opposite the pub, right by the crossing, there is a narrow entrance to the car park for the Ferry, Boat Hire and moorings. As you come into the car park the club building is on your left. Park in the main part of the car park or we can open the barrier to the car park extension if space is tight. The map below shows where we are (just by the Hampton Ferry Landing on what is marked as Bens Alley)
