P*** up in a brewery


IMG_0274With the start of the Devizes food festival guess where we are going.

IMG_0276Carolyn soon got into action and was most impressed with The Wiltshire Chilli Farm stall and soon had a bag full of their produce.

IMG_0277I know i mostly drink wine ,but i don't mind the odd pint or three ,so a visit to Wadworth Brewery was a must.

IMG_0280You cant beat a piss up drink in a brewery and while Carolyn looked around that's exactly what i didn't do unfortunately.We were going to book the tour around the brewery but just our luck that it was full for the time we were in Devizes

IMG_0286If you see this boat moored whatever you do don't moor anywhere near it. According to other boaters it has a bit of a bad reputation in this area which is surprising as it belongs to The Bruce Trust. They spent all-night and most of the following morning on a water point and then forcing other boaters to sit in the bridge hole to get their water ,but they seem to like their drink and letting off fireworks late at night.

IMG_0287The Kennet and Avon canal museum is opposite our mooring on the Wharf and is well worth a visit if you are in the area.

IMG_0290It was good to see this working model of The Crofton pumping station after the disappointment of finding it closed when we were there a few days ago.

IMG_0288Some of the canal Art on display in the museum.

IMG_0293The Kennet and Avon Canal was reopened by the Queen in 1990 and this is her actual signature.. But i think she needs to learn how to spell her name.

Our last day in Devizes and how could we leave with out another visit to Wetherspoons . Then when we pull pins here its onto the 29 locks that take you down the hill from Devizes then on towards Bath.
