The main flight

The main flight
Caen Hill Flight on the Kennet and Avon canal is a series of 29 locks, a rise of 237 feet in 2 miles taking around 5-6 hours to complete. I am proud to say that as a teenager I helped with some of the restoration of this beautiful canal.

That is a lovely view --- I've visited this flight a few times, and a few years ago leant a hand (or rather my back) helping boats.

Even more years ago, as a teenager, I had the dubious pleasure of helping clean out some of the pounds and winding holes at the Bath end of the K&A ... you can imagine some of the junk we found, also the huge lily roots we had to extract. I don't think I have any images, unfortunately.

Interesting perspective...............but this works very well and shows off the multiple locks very nicely!

Wonderful composition of this impressive structure.
(would like to visit there, but it is too far away from our itinerary)
