2008 : Wilts & Berks Canal Junction near Semington
2008 : Wilts & Berks Canal Junction near Semington, taken 9 years ago
We are looking east from Semington bridge into the Kennet & Avon Canal. Before us we see the ex-junction with the Wilts & Berks Canal which ran from here to the Thames at Abingdon and is now undergoing restoration by the Wilts & Berks Canal Trust.
Melksham presents a considerable problem for the restoration team as much of the canal route through the town has been lost (they know where it is but it has been filled in and built over). To overcome this there are plans afoot to route the canal via the River Avon. For further info. see LinkExternal link
