Wiltshire News

- 3 degrees at 7 am, 12.6 degrees at 6.30 pm! What a beautiful day. The Wiltshire countryside is stunning in this weather. We have the bow doors wide open, cratch cover up and the sun is blazing in.

Everybody drives through Wiltshire on their way to somewhere, no one ever stops - or so they say locally. Well it is worth stopping for the scenery, history, historical sights, walks and of course the Kennet and Avon Canal. The people, communities and pubs are very welcoming.

The hire boats are here! Reading Marine, Anglo Welsh, Alvechurch and White Horse Boats are all in evidence! However don't let that put you off. We found the canal less busy than we expected last summer.

There is a new Blog for you to follow if interested - some more boaters from God's Wonderful Country of Cornwall! Nb Petroc was a show boat for Darren Aldridge at last year's Crick. They will be traveling the system this summer so look out for them!
