I drove past the sign to Caen Hill Locks on the way to my meeting, so I stopped for lunch on the way back. They are an impressive run of 16 locks on the Kennet & Avon canal – part of a total of 29 in a 2 mile stretch.
They were built in 1810 – a pretty impressive bit of engineering. Although I didn’t have time to explore the full stretch it was nice to see them all lined up in a row. They were massively refurbished – saved really – from the 1960s onwards. I’m glad.
