Devizes - pub walk    3.2 miles  1hr 6min walking time.
Devizes is an historic market town with a colourful medieval past. The town enjoys a rich heritage of fine Georgian houses and a 19th century castle built on the site of a Norman stronghold.
Wadworth's celebrated brewery remains in its original town location and their brewer's dray drawn by mighty Shire Horses is a regular and much-loved sight on the streets. Tours of the brewery are offered and a visitor centre is also on site.
One of the UK’s most iconic canals, the Kennet & Avon canal passes through Devizes and the famous flight of 29 locks are easily accessible on foot.
