13-07-2011 : THE KENNET AND AVON CANAL FEATURES PRESERVED

After months of restoration work British Waterways has refurbished a number of Baths most iconic canal features back to their former glory.

The cast iron footbridges and the leaning Bath Chimney which are situated on the Bath Flight on the Kennet And Avon Canal have undergone refurbishment.

The Wash House Bridge was removed from site and taken to a specialist team at Dorothea Restorations in Bristol for restoration.

The former pump house chimney which was built in 1840 was dismantled and stone masons where hired to repair the stonework and rebuild.

David Viner, British Waterways heritage advisor, said We are absolutely delighted with the results of this restoration work and I would like to take the opportunity to thank the experts who have helped us.

You can explore the Kennet And Avon Canal and see the restoration work at Wash House Bridge on a Canal Boat Holiday booked from Hilperton Marina.

Explore the Kennet and Avon on a Canal Boat Holiday and cross over the Avoncliffe Aqueduct which was designed by John Rennie.

Navigate the Caen Hill Locks on your Canal Boat Holiday which are a flight of 16 locks and thought to be the most impressive anywhere on the UK waterways.

Take the time on a Canal Boat Holiday and visit the world heritage site of Bath where you can walk in the footsteps of the Romans.

Bath is surrounded hills and honey stoned villages of the Cotswolds and South Gloucestershire and is ideal for the walking trails and national cycle networks on offer in the area.
