Great Canal Journeys

We’re not sure how many people got to see the wonderful ‘Great Canal Journeys’ the other night, featuring Prunella Scales and Timothy West travelling from Bath to Devizes along the Kennet and Avon Canal.  It was a lovely program highlighting not just this beautiful area but also the Alzheimer’s that Pru has.  She was, however, amazingly good humoured and fighting fit for her 81 years, leaping off the boat and handling nearly all the locks with an enthusiasm that belied her age.

They stopped at Bradford on Avon for a good time, visiting the Lock Inn for an ice-cream and a chat with Dick… then on to see Nicky at the Floating Salon, where Pru had her hair done.  It’s always nice to see somewhere local on TV and a great bit of advertising for us all.

If you get a chance to see it on Catch-Up television, it’s well worth a look…

We thought this was an ideal opportunity to showcase a couple of Serena’s photos of Canal life!…
