This is a special part of English Canal life admiring all the different Canal boats of various ages, colours and design. It is very quiet travelling on Canal and quite peaceful. Although the Jazz night was certainly fun to do.

Great for all to go and see and walk pub at the top and one at the bottom. You can walk all along side the locks and watch people letting the water in or out of the lock Very picturesque

The Caen hill café was excellent service, excellent food. The cakes are scrummy. The view from the top of Caen Hill is superb. Well worth the walk. The disabled facilities were very good too for a café. Would recommend it.
