Avon Vale workboat group volunteers deliver on the K&A

Volunteers from the Devizes based Avon Vale workboat team have been busy this week moving the British Waterways work boat Kennet II from Hungerford to Wootton Rivers. The move, that took two days, freed up two BW members of staff for Winter maintenance work on the canal.

Along the way they picked up a 'chipper' at Great Bedwyn and the boat will be used by contractors in the coming weeks to cut back vegetation on the non-towpath side of the canal from Wootton Rivers to 
Devizes.
