Leave the bustle of Devizes behind you and enter the secret world of canals before heading along pretty paths into open countryside and on to Roundway village.

Once Devizes had seven wharves, crawling with workers handling goods such as timber, stone and grain. Today, there's plenty to see and do in this charming market town dating back to the 11th Century.

Don't miss the 16-lock Caen Hill Lock Flight, part of 29 locks built between Devizes and Lower Foxhangers. This allows boats to pass through a drop of 237 feet in 2 miles (72m in 3.2km). This feat of engineering is a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
