Ten Bob Note


Thursday 17th April 2008

Location: Caen Hill, Wiltshire, Kennet & Avon Canal

Today: 5 miles, 14 locks. Total distance: 1325 miles.  Total locks: 882

A busy day today. We walked into Melksham with the dogs to visit my mother and to pick up a few odds and ends of shopping.

The weather forecast for the next few days is not great so we decided to pull the pins around 11:00 and head toward Devizes and the Caen Hill flight while the weather was good. It has been sunny today but cold and very windy with it. We made it to the bottom of the Caen Hill flight just before 17:00. The locks close at 17:00 and we are first in line to head up the flight when it opens at 08:00 in the morning. The flight gets drained down over night so all of the locks will be in our favour in the morning which will be a great help.
