ST8260 : Pub sign, Canal Tavern, Bradford on Avon by Brian Robert Marshall
The sign is under glass so it may be a fairly recently printed poster. It is a colourful and cheerful, if perhaps idealised, representation of a typical 19th century canalside scene.

ST8160 : Kennet and Avon Canal looking east by Graham Horn
The section of the Kennet and Avon canal west of Bradford-on-Avon runs along a tree-lined embankment above the River Avon. The towpath provides a pleasant 2-mile walk or cycle to the Cross Guns pub at Avoncliff, returning along another path nearer the river. The towpath also forms part of National Cycle Route 4, and the Macmillan Way long distance path.
The whole of the canal in this area was prone to landslips, being built on the side of the hill. Therefore as part of the second phase of restoration during the 1990's it was completely rebuilt in a concrete channel to allow easy maintenance and minimise the risk of further landslips. You can't tell can you?

ST8160 : Barton Farm swing bridge by Graham Horn
Halfway between Bradford-on-Avon and Avon cliff the Kennet and Avon canal passes Barton Farm swing bridge. As the vehicle access is only to a water treatment works it is kept open most of the time, pedestrians accessing the country park by the adjacent footbridge.
This picture ST8160 : Bradford Swing Bridge, Kennet and Avon Canal by Dr Clifton shows the same location from the opposite direction before restoration.
