The Kennet & Avon Canal

September 2004 saw us embarking on the Narrowboat Foxhunter, a slightly topical name that bearing in mind all the political shinnanigans going on at the time over HM Government's efforts to ban foxhunting - but that's another story and not one I intend to delve into here! Somehow I can't help but feel it'll all end in tears.

Anyway, we hired Foxhunter, a 68ft narrowboat from Foxhangers at Devizes - the yard is actually at the very foot of the Caen Hill locks - in Wiltshire. None of the crew had "done" any of the K&A by boat - although some of us had walked various sections going back to the time before restoration.

Pictures of the River Avon section and Bristol Docks will be posted shortly.
