Hello everyone, we are back on a boat! This is the start of our journey along the Kennet & Avon, where we attempt to complete the whole of the canal (apart from the Bath to Bristol section, which we covered last year). In this episode we kick off with a bit of packing, make our way to the hire boat base, and set off on what turned out to be a surprisingly sunny afternoon. We encounter electronic lift bridges, manually operated swing bridges, and a collection of locks. We also show of our windlasses (which will get quite the workout on this canal!), and look forward to the adventures that await us… on the Kennet & Avon canal!
