I walked from Land's End to John o'Groats starting on 5 April 2009 and finished on 13 June 2009, raising over £4,000 for MS Research and Relief Fund in the process. I posted to this blog every day.

More canal walking
Had an enjoyable weekend in the camper in Wiltshire near Devizes on a site at Sells Green. It was only 100 yards from the Kennet and Avon Canal and a 5km walk along the towpath into Devizes. The towpath was very well maintained and passed by the new marina at the foot of Caen Hill Locks.
The flight of locks, sixteen of them, are very impressive. Last time I visited (which was more years ago than I care to remember), the whole canal was overgrown and in a sad condition of neglect and disuse. restoration work has taken place and everything is in full working order and used by narrowboats by holidaymakers. There were also a good number of boats in permanent moorings and occupied. However, they weren't going anywhere this weekend as the canal was frozen over.
