Did you know the longest flight of locks on Britainís waterways is to be found near Devizes? The 29-lock stretch on two miles of the Kennet and Avon Canal climbs 230 foot high Caen Hill, and was understandably the last part of that project to be completed. It takes an experienced user a good five hours to pass through the system designed by the great canal engineer John Rennie.
