This section of the canal is behind the Esso Garage at the Junction of Kingshill and Westcote Place.
The Towpath is at the rear of the garage off Sunnyside Ave. The landing stage, where Dragonfly leaves from, is 200 yards along the towpath. Parking is available in the Sunnyside Avenue area.
Swindon Library have published some of their old photos on a Flickr Album. There are 67 images about our Canals. There are even some that have "What it looks like now" images. The black and white photo on the right is one of them.
