You approach The Bedwyns from Froxfield (Froxfield Middle Lock (69) and Oakhill Down (68) which is about 4 miles again and 8 locks onwards from Hungerford, so best to estimate about 3 hours duration.
The Bedwyns are where you see the co-existence of the canal and railway (GWR) which was why the GWR purchased the canal originally to benefit from the cuts and earthworks that paved the way for the railway. Now its an interesting combination and from time to time special old trains run along the Bedwyns popular with photographers. There is also the Stonemasonry Museum reflecting the history of stone being worked and quarried along the canal between Bristol and Reading and onwards via the Thames to the wider canal network in the midlands and beyond.
Pubs of note in Great Bedwyn include the Three Tuns and Cross keys and the Harrow Inn in little Bedwyn and a couple of local shops for urgent supplies.
