I am planning on walking part of the Kennet & Avon canal over the May Day Bank Holiday with my wife and 2 friends. We plan to start from Pewsey and walk to Devizes before stopping overnight, then do Devizes to Bradford on Avon on the 2nd day and do Bradford on Avon to Bristol (Temple Meads train station), on day 3.
My question is, what is the condition of the surface along this part, particularly from Pewsey to Devizes? Am I right in believing that from Devizes to Bristol the surface is good and solid?
This will obviously determine our choice of footwear. Can we get away with trainers, or do we need to wear proper boots (which I tend to wear only when the surface is very poor)?
Thanks in anticipation of your response.
