Public hanging at Caen Hill on the K&A Canal

Kennet & Avon Canal — Devizes winter works open day
British Waterways engineers are replacing seven pairs of lock gates on the Caen Hill Flight and a special open day has been set  aside in the schedule so that the public can come and see just what is involved in maintaining this important scheduled ancient monument.
