The spectacular Dundas Aqueduct on the Kennet & Avon Canal is a Scheduled Ancient Monument. That means it’s as important as Stonehenge!

What could be better than walking the beautiful canal on a sunny autumn day and arriving at this magnificent structure? If getting away from the crowds and communing with nature is what relaxes you then take a trip to the Dundas Aqueduct.

It was great to see the narrow boats silently making their way down the canal. A great spot for lunch. There is some information about the canal system near the cafe. There are cycling paths along the canal.

An amazing feat of engineering - feels slightly odd being by the water, suspended high above fields and the railway line. A beautiful walk along the canal and everything you need to know about this magnificent restoration in the little information room at the marina
