In 2007 we took a trip down to Bath in June, and to Bath and part way down the River Avon in October.
Not a long journey from Bradford on Avon to Bath but very pretty and tranquil.
|Near Limpley Stoke.|
|Nice house and gardens.|
|Start of Somerset Coal Canal.|
|Moored at Bath.|
|Entrance to Bristol Floating Harbour|
|SS Great Britain.|
In October we went downstream as far as Saltford Lock which was out of commission forcing us back to Bath, annoyingly did not see any stoppage notices before we got to the lock, we would not have made it to Bristol as Gill won,t do tidal.
|Coming back up the Avon.|
|Entering the start of the Kennet and Avon Canal.|
|Sharing Bath Deep Lock.|
We shared the locks before mooring for the night at Bath Top lock. Spending a couple more days in Bath, finding nice restaurant's and looking round the city with my father.
|Bath Top Lock Visitor Moorings.|
|Passing Sydney Gardens.|
We moored for the night at Claverton Pumping Station, one of the volunteers kindly opened it so we could have a quick look around.

We spent the last day having a look around Bradford on Avon. Some interesting buildings in this lovely town but it is blighted by traffic.
|Bradford Windmill, now a hotel.|
|Thatched cottage with leaded windows.|
