Kennet and Avon Canal
This waterway covers stunning views of open plains and villages. It runs through the historic Georgian city of Bath. This is a very popular waterway, playing host to tourists and locals all year long. This canal is 87 miles long and links the Bristol Canal with London. Thousands of visitors enjoy walks and boating every day. This waterway was originally three different canals—the Kennet Navigation, the Avon Navigation, and the Kennet and Avon Canal. This canal was completed in 1810. In the 1960’s, this canal was on the brink of closure. It took a concerted effort from waterway enthusiasts to bring it back. Now it is one of the country’s favourite waterways.
