We have lived in Swindon for 33 years and did not know this existed. Anyway having seen a you tube clip of a cyclist going along the route, we decided to try and find it on one of our trips out for exercise during lockdown.

We went on a boiling hot afternoon and it was lovely and relaxing. I didn’t even know it existed but so glad I do now. Will be definitely going again. Thanks must go to the volunteers who run these trips. 10 out of 10.

The canal is now with water in it and a bridge across to the new public house. (Hall and Woodhouse brewery ). There are plans to build houses along the canal in the near future. Nice place to visit to walk along the canal .
