Another must-see whilst in Devizes is the Kennet and Avon Canal including the spectacular Caen Hill flight of 29 locks leading up to Devizes. The flight was a major engineering feat when built at the end of the 18th Century. In the town, the Kennet & Avon Canal Trust Museum on the Wharf, overlooking the canal, tells the tale of the construction, operation, closure and restoration of the canal. The tow path from the Wharf leads to the locks and provides excellent views of the countryside. Boat hire and trips on the canal are available in the summer.
