Once a busy industrial canal wharf, Aldermaston Wharf is now a picture of tranquillity. It’s great place to start exploring the beautiful Kennet & Avon Canal.

Great place to come fishing on the River Kennet at this location for chub that are quite easy to catch and also to catch shy, hard fighting Kennet barbel. Favourite baits vary but luncheon meat or curry powdered luncheon meat can be deadly.
