Kennet and Avon Canal Trail

The Kennet & Avon Canal turned 200 years old in 2010. Follow this link to download the Bath Flight Audio Trail. These audio files explore 12 key features on the Kennet and Avon Canal between Halfpenny Bridge and Darlington Wharf in central Bath. Although the canal was originally a commercial route, John Rennie, the chief engineer, ensured that the canal and its bridges and buildings reflected Bath’s Georgian architecture.
