IMG_0225We pulled pins at 08.30 from Honey street and soon came across this boat. It says there is room for over 50 people inside . I bet that would be a tight squeeze.







Just loved these signs that we passed .First you see the one on the left and then you get around the corner and then you see the other one.

IMG_0254After a few hours cruising we pulled into the wharf at Devizes and were surprised to find so many empty moorings. Although not long after mooring it soon filled up.

IMG_0255We are moored next to Devizes cemetery and Carolyn continues her search for my final resting place.

IMG_0257The Kennet and Avon canal has loads of pill boxes along its length as it was to be a defensive line had the Germans invaded during the War. This one is protected and is a Grade 2 listed building.

IMG_0262Snuff street . I wonder how it got that name.

IMG_0265The Silk Mercer is another Wetherspoons pub . Did we go in ?? Of course we did….Just the ticket.

IMG_0266After another good lunch at Spoons it was off for a walk around Devizes. Its a shame but the castle can not be viewed as it has now been converted into flats with some of them fetching £2 million each .

IMG_0267One of the oldest houses in Devizes is Sextons cottage and set in the grounds of the church, It is a former Almshouse and built in 1615.

With the Devizes food festival on at the moment and plenty to see and do, tomorrow will be another full and fun packed day.
