DAY TRIP ROUTES

Avoncliff & Return 3-6 Hours with 1 Lock

If travelling West, you’ll head towards Bradford on Avon about 1 hour cruising from Hilperton. You’ll pass through Bradford on Avon Lock and then cruise on towards Avoncliff Aqueduct.

Depending on your lunch arrangements we suggest you turn somewhere between Avoncliff and Limpley Stoke. A popular stop for lunch is at the Cross Guns pub set between the canal and the River Avon.

  • Features an aqueduct

  • Straight cruise with just 1 lock

  • 1 Canal side pub (The Cross Guns)

Seend Cleeve & Return ~6 Hours with 7 Locks

If travelling East, you’ll pass through a swing bridge on the way to the village of Semington. You will pass the historic entrance to the Wilts and Berks Canal followed immediately by two locks.

Between here and the flight of locks at Seend Cleeve are three further swing bridges. You should turn around at this point and not go up the five lock flight.
We suggest that you stop for lunch at either The Barge Inn at Seend Cleeve which is idyllically located canalside at bridge 154 or if you prefer a more leisurely return trip then head back to The Somerset Arms at Semington

  • Features a canal side pub (The Barge Inn)

  • Multiple locks

  • Features a small aqueduct
