Caen Hill Locks

The dramatic change in height of the land at Caen Hill resulted in the need for 16 locks to be built in close succession. Because of the steepness of the hill engineer John Rennie had to build unusually large side ponds to replenish the water in each lock after use. The locks were the last stretch of the Kennet & Avon Canal built in 1810 and form part of a longer 29-lock flight at Devizes, just over two miles long. They are designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument – the same level of heritage protection as given to Stonehenge. https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/places-to-visit/52-caen-hill-locks
