The Kennet & Avon Canal — Reflections 40 years on

Ray Denyar: Picture by Bob Naylor

Ray Denyar was involved in the early restoration work on the Kennet & Avon Canal before he turned his attentions to the Wilts & Berks Canal.
He has a huge archive of slides from the early days of the struggle to prevent closure of the canal and then the work by volunteers to restore it.  He will use some of those slides to illustrate his talk, 'The K&A - reflections 40 years on', at the Wilts & Berks Canal Trust Wootton Basset Branch meeting at the Cross Keys in High Street, Wootton Bassett (SN4 7AY) at 7:30pm on Monday December 6th.

This is an open meeting, so all are welcome, but if you could contact Jenny Stratton to let her know you are coming she can makes sure they make enough mince pies.
