SU2864 : Bedwyn Wharf

taken 10 years ago, near to Great Bedwyn, Wiltshire, Great Britain

Bedwyn Wharf
Bedwyn Wharf
After this section of canal was opened, about 1796, there was a large wharf here, serving Bedwyn and the surrounding agricultural land. The canal was the M4 of its day.
Today it is still a thriving place. There are moorings and boat engineering and repair facilities. It is also the home of the boats of The Bruce Trust, a charity that provides canal holidays for disabled people. Two of their wide-beam boats are seen here, Hannah and (probably) Rebecca. The boats all have wheelchair lifts for access and full wheelchair circulating space inside. Their website is here LinkExternal link
