Paving stones, Canal Walk, Swindon
Paving stones, Canal Walk, Swindon
As might be deduced from the name of this pedestrianised shopping area, once upon a time the Wilts and Berks canal ran through this part of Swindon. Although the canal was conceived in 1793 it didn't open until 1810, mainly because of distractions such as the Napoleonic wars. It was never as successful as the better-known Kennet and Avon canal and it fell into disuse in about 1900. More here LinkExternal link
