Canal views

We took a couple of excursions along the Kennet & Avon Canal. They weren’t very far but we took in some of the cycleway & some towpath & had good views of the countryside, the canal-boats, the rail-way & lots & lots of locks.

While riding from Bath towards Bristol (didn’t make it all the way) we came across this very serious engine driver & his train.

Another visit was to the Caen Hill Flight of locks, where we walked up & down more than 20 locks & watched the canal-boats during their 6-7 hour journey through the locks.
From near mid-way, looking up…
