Former branch canal to railway sidings
Former branch canal to railway sidings
The running of the Kennet and Avon Canal was taken over by the Great Western Railway in the 1850s. A canal spur was put in from Aldermaston Wharf to a goods yard beside the railway, just north of here, to facilitate transfer of cargo. The railway end was filled in at the start of World War II - this photo shows the remaining open water (information from canalside boards).
