Berks and Wilts Canal

Great little walk along the Berks and Wilts canal yesterday. Started at Grove and finished near Steventon. I couldn't quite get to Abingdon in the time available, but it's a start. It's not an easy walk though as most of the foot paths are very overgrown and fallen trees, flooded field boundaries and local deer don't help. Was a good hour and a half romp though.

It's amazing to see how much of the old canal infrastructure still exists – lock gates still in situ and others seem to be delicate frames hanging in the air. I'll post the route later, but here are a couple of pictures.


Update, I completed the walk easily today. After crossing the road between Hanney and Steventon it's a very straight forward walk with a good path, track and well managed footpaths.
