Avon Road, Devizes SN10 1PR The Kennet & Avon Canal has awesome examples of canal engineering. At Caen Hill, you can see one of the longest continuous flight of locks in the country - a total of 29 locks with a rise of 237 feet over 2 miles! An impressive bit of engineering. Interesting to watch…
Take a walk up the lock flight - you may see wildlife, great for photography and there is a café at the top!

Europes longest flight with 29 locks, which rise 237 feet in 2½ miles. It truly is a magnificent site but there is so much more to see and do in and around Devizes.
This flight of 16 locks may be the most impressive anywhere on the UK's waterways. They are designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument – the same level of heritage protection given to Stonehenge.
