A sunny celebration in Bath (on Friday, June 5th) on a tiny patch of land where the River Avon meets the Widcombe end of the Kennet and Avon Canal.

It was held to official unveil the ‘upgrading’ work around this junction which has been carried out by the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust’s Bath and Bristol branch volunteer team with the support of the Canal and River Trust.

It involved clearing 50 years of unrestricted plant growth which has done nothing to enhance this historic heritage location, originally completed in 1810 when the canal through to London was opened and modified as part of the 1960’s Flood defence Works.

Vice Chair Ian Herve told the Virtual Museum exactly what had been done.
