Canal Boating

Hilperton - Hungerford, UK

September 2017

I love canal boats, especially driving the boat and doing the canal locks with my family. The greatest bit of doing the locks is at the Caen Hill Flight, where there are 29 locks in a row. The last canal holiday I had, was over 10 years ago with the Guides. It was great to bring back the experience!
