Thanks for posting this video - it's fab - I especially like the steam trains.

Some of the scenery looks unchanged e.g. the view up Caen Hill - hard to believe that it had a long period of dereliction after this film was taken before being restored to its modern state.

Magic!

Superb piece of film as the previous comment said Magic! I was a privalige to see. We have several early films in our archive they all add to the story of this fantastic historic waterway.
