This Is Wiltshire: Carollers singing by candlelight at Dundas basin Carollers singing by candlelight at Dundas basin

Hundreds of people gathered for the 15th annual canalside carol service at Dundas Wharf, on the Kennet and Avon Canal, on December 7.

Sue and Andy Smith of Canal Ministries and the Trowbridge band of the Salvation Army led the carol service.

Canal boats were decorated with Christmas lights and tinsel as people gathered to sing at the canal side near Brassknocker Basin.

Organiser Peter Atwill, who is stepping down this year, said: “The whole thing was lit up by candle light as the electric failed, so people used the light to sing from their carol sheets. It was a great atmosphere.”
