Once arrived, it takes a few hours to work through the 29 locks and moor up at the top. The Caen Hill Cafe provides a welcome break and is located just next to the locks. The canal now meanders through the delightful countryside without any locks on the way. Honeystreet is soon reached. A pub, boatyard, cafe and shop are situated right at the canalfront. This marks the turning point for this route.
