KENNET & AVON CANAL: A User's Guide

NIALL ALLSOP    Book Number: 87391    Product format: Paperback

The fourth edition to the definitive guide to the whole of the Kennet & Avon Waterway between Reading and Bristol providing a full range of practical advice for the boater, walker and general enthusiast. Engineering at the Padworth Lock, Crofton Pumping Station flaunting the strength of its brick while the stonework of Ladies Bridge, delicate and bramble-clad, echoes with silent memories. The mirrored simplicity of wood and stone is but one of 29 such images at Devizes but the classical curves of Dundas Aqueduct have no equal. Floating harbours, tranquil waterways, colourful craft, we meander under the Clifton Suspension Bridge along the Feeder Canal for 3½ miles with one lock, following the directions carefully with notes on places of interest like a contemporary arts complex, shops, sightseeing and public transport. There are notes for the boater where not to tie up and where to watch out for sailing dinghies between Saltford and Kelston locks (4 and 5) and where not to moor. For the walker, the most direct route between Bath's outskirts and the Bitton-Swineford area is via the Avon Walkway and Cycleway. Enjoy all the maps, diagrams, archive and modern photographs in this brilliantly designed handy 64 page softback. 30 maps and six detailed walks.
