Home of Wadworth Brewery, the charming historic market town of Devizes lies at the very heart of Wiltshire. The outline of the town walls creates the ‘D’ shape for the centre, which retains its medieval street plan. The town is compact and, being on the level, easy to walk around. Devizes is probably best known for the Kennet and Avon Canal’s Caen Hill flight of 29 locks, which rise 237 feet in 2½ miles. Devizes is twinned with the towns of Mayenne in France, Tornio in Finland, Waiblingen in Germany and Oamaru in New Zealand. Today, Devizes can boast nearly 500 listed buildings which is probably the highest concentration anywhere in England. The annual Devizes to Westminster Canoe Race takes place over the Easter weekend with the competitors starting at the wharf and then embarking on a 125-mile marathon to reach the Houses of Parliament. Several of the 90 locks require the competitors to carry their craft.
