A group of 16 individual locks on the Kennet & Avon Canal near Devizes. The locks are part of total of 29 locks within a 2mile stretch. It takes around 5 hours to travel through all 29 locks on a boat.
Kennet & Avon Canal
The Kennet and Avon is made up of two river navigations and a linking stretch of canal. It runs from Hanham Lock near Bristol to the River Thames at Reading, over 100 miles long with more than 100 locks, some magnificent engineering and crossing some of the most beautiful scenery in southern England. It was only reopened in 1990 after decades of dereliction.
