Market Day In Devizes

Thursday is Market Day in Devizes and as we fancied a weekend out of the Marina John brought the narrowboat down the canal to Devizes Wharf. So I went to work in the morning from the marina and returned to the Wharf, where it is possible to park the car on the tow path side. We could not make our minds up as to whether to go down the Caen flight and on to Sells Green on Friday. We planed to go to Beer o’ clock with the Bath Narrowboats guys and also to meet up with Sarah and Andy from “Arcadia” who are camping down there in the camp site alongside the canal, just by the Three Magpies pub.

Looking at the weather forecasts there were so many opinions as to whether it would be wet we decided to stay on the Wharf and drive down! The wharf to Sells Green is 29 locks and about 3 miles – a 6-hour trip providing there are no queues for locks or other hold ups. It would be an up and back trip and really calls for nice weather we think!
