Take time to walk alongside the Kennet and Avon Canal or cycle further than the sixteen locks which make the stunning well-known and well-photographed steep flight. The incredible engineering feat extends to 29 locks altogether, and whether seen on foot, by bicycle of from one of the barges on the canal gives you the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful countryside and many aspects of nature in the water and on the banks. Fishermen are happy to pass the time of day, tell you what they've caught (or hope to catch!) and there's a public house and a café for those needing refreshment.
Parking is available roadside or at the lower end the pay-and-display car park can be found up a lane.
If you like being beside the canal, the annual Devizes to Westminster International Canoe Race happens every Easter; the first competitors leave from Devizes Wharf and go along the canal the opposite way - not towards the locks. Find a spot anywhere along the 125 mile route to watch the very fit teams compete!
