Fleming Way and The Parade, Swindon
Fleming Way and The Parade, Swindon
Fleming Way is in the foreground. It was once the route of the Wilts and Berks Canal that once ran for 52 miles (84 kilometres) between the Kennet and Avon Canal at Semington, north-east of Trowbridge, to the Thames Navigation at Abingdon. It was never an unqualified success and was operational along its whole length from 1810 to about 1900 before it was abandoned.

The building at the left is a branch of the well-known department store Debenhams, built here in the 1960s under the Bon Marche trading name. Virtually everything in this image dates from the 1960s with the exception of the David Murray John tower visible at the extreme right which was built in the 1970s and the plastic tent-like structure. The bus is also rather more modern dating probably from 2002.
