Impressed by Lacock Canal

We went for a walk around Lacock today – a walk we had not done for about a year. We enjoyed the sunshine and part of the route was along the Wiltshire and Berkshire Canal. This has been derelict for nearly a century and is being restored by volunteers. It was impressive to see a continuous waterway in this area where last year there had just been occasional stagnant pools in an uneven trench. When complete, the canal will again connect the River Thames at Abingdon and Cricklade with the Kennet and Avon Canal at Melksham on a route through Swindon and passing near Chippenham. Impressive!
