The Avon Vale has been busy in action helping British Waterways inspect the long pound of the Kennet & Avon canal. The Avon Vale also helped move the BW work boat, Kennet II from Hungerford to Wootton Rivers in order for contractors to carry out vital vegetation work on the non towpath side of the long pound.
