Devizes

On our way home from Ironbridge this is our first visit to a pukka Caravan & Camping Club site. Located by the Three Magpies just off the A365 near Devizes. It backs on to the Kennet and Avon Canal and is about 4 miles along the towpath into the town centre of Devizes. The spectacular bit of this tow path is Caen Hill Locks, a flight of 16 locks themselves part of the 29 Devizes flight.  At the topmost lock is a cafe that has spectacular views over locks out across a large part of Wiltshire.

There are pleasant walks up the lane to Seend village and the other direction along the towpath. The owner of the smart house on the other side of the canal from the campsite likes his cars as you can see from the very nice mustang that rumbled down the lane toward us.

If this site is anything to go by then we are sold on C&CC site facilities. They were ample and very well maintained. If we have a criticism it is of the campers themselves who all disappear into their vans and tents in time to watch Eastenders and that is the last seen of them.
