Walking in Wiltshire

It was half term holidays last week and we did a couple of day trips. First was a visit to Caen Hill Locks which are on the Kennet and Avon Canal in Wiltshire. There are 29 locks over a distance of 2 miles. All the locks are manually operated and I was glad that I was on foot and not in a boat, it took the boats hours to get through.

Not just locks and boats



My husband spotted this sign



Do you think he's trying to tell me something?

Next stop was



and a l-o-n-g walk to the top of the hill





Time to rest



Made it!

Beautiful. It looks so peaceful there...and so green. I'd be exhausted if I had to walk up that hill.
