|The "Kenavon Venture" approaches London Road Bridge.|
From Devizes Wharf it is possible to take a gentle 1.5 hour cruise along the canal on the K&A Trust's tripboat the "Kenavon Venture." The cruise enables you to see the canal at duck level, and to enjoy the many colourful moored boats, pretty gardens with plants and wildlife that line or live near the towpath. The tripboat runs every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons, leaving the Wharf at 14.30 and returning at 16.00. We also run "Special Occasion" cruises, family outings for Mother's Day, charters for Wedding Days, cruises to see the famous "Caen Hill" flight of locks, and at Christmas, the popular "Santa Cruises" for young children. The boat travels and picks up Santa along the way, and when he boards the boat, he gives all the children presents. These trips are very popular, especially with the adults who enjoy a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie.
The weather here is glorious at the moment, not a sign of the hard winter that is predicted for this year. The photos below show the "Kenavon Venture" turning the tight bend at London Road Bridge and a dog walker, out enjoying the dappled autumn light.
