Visited whilst walking along the canal and what can I say other than stunning. The scenery is just amazing with the water, the wide life, the hills and the canal. Well worth the walk from Bradford.

Must see this place. Very popular for walking and cycling. Easy to get from Bath. Unspoilt and quiet in the week.

We went through this aqueduct twice boating on the canal. Fascinating travelling so high over the landscape. Take time to look at the aqueduct from beneath !

Spent a pleasant couple of hours walking up and down the canal, which crosses the river Avon here. One thing to note is that parking is extremely restricted and the road on the South side is extremely steep and narrow. If I go again I...More
