After an early start on Saturday we visited Stourhead again to see the gardens in a different season and to have an easy walk as Steve was still having problems with his foot.
We arrived at the site early afternoon and were met with a very warm welcome by the Site Managers. We had a choice of pitches and settled on one that was sheltered by hedges and wasn't too far from the facilities block.
Pitch 69 Devizes
The site is close to the Kennet and Avon Canal so we walked the tow path, past the Caen Locks to Devizes. This was another easy walk, but not so easy for those on the canal to get through 29 locks which have a rise of 237 feet over two miles!

All too soon the weekend was over and it was time to return home on Monday. This is definitely a site to return to as there are plenty of other footpaths near the site, not just the canal tow path.
