Sells Green - Devizes - Rowde Walk

WalkExplorer

Beginning at Sells Green, Wiltshire, towards the Kennet and Avon Canal to walk up the Caen Hill flight of locks, the route reaches Devizes before heading over to Rowde. The whole route is one of beautiful lush countryside and interesting architecture, from small cottages to houses large and grand. The Caen Hill flight of locks rises in an amazing display of engineering genius, a tribute to John Rennie and one of the wonders of the Inland Waterways. Built on the high ground of the Vale of Pewsey, the lock flight plunges 237ft from the edge of Devizes towards the Avon Valley in approximately two and a half miles and was completed in 1810. Sadly, the canal went into decline for decades, until it was eventually restored to its present state in the 1970s through the dedicated efforts of volunteers.
