Cricklade Latton 12 June 2002
 
Way back in 2002 I decided that I should investigate Latton Basin.  Not having any real idea as to how to gain access I drove to Cricklade and located the River Thames. I then followed it until I reached the site of the old aqueduct which had carried the North Wilts Canal over the river.  From there on the canal line is well preserved although overgrown.  Eventually I arrived at the Basin and so began my infatuation with it.

If you visit the junction now the T&S canal will look very different, thanks to the efforts of the Cotswold Canals Trust.
