Photographer's Note

The Kennet and Avon Canal is a canal in southern England. It is joined to the Bristol Avon at Bath, and the Rivers Kennet and Thames at Reading. The canal, which was built between 1794 and 1810, is 57 miles (92 km) long, but together with the Avon Navigation and Kennet Navigation it totals 87 miles (140 km).

In the later 19th and early 20th centuries the canal fell into disuse following competition from the Great Western Railway who owned the canal. In the latter half of the 20th century the canal was restored, largely by volunteers, and today is a popular heritage tourism destination, for boating, canoeing, fishing, walking and cycling. The canal is also important for wildlife conservation.

PS. My favourite local place when going for walks.
