  • Gotta love this place. Catch it in the sun or in deep snow and it will blow your mind, so picturesque great for photos and a lovely walk along the famous locks. Great way to cycle the day away too
  • A wonderful waterway meandering through the west country. Most of it is easily accessible for walking or cycling as it passes through spectacular scenery and historic towns.
