Its length is 87 miles (140km) with 105 locks, and it took sixteen years to complete. With the coming of the Great Western Railway its revenue declined, and the GWR eventually took it over. The canal became disused and overgrown, but in the 1960s the K&A Canal Trust was formed and over the years the canal has been restored and is now fully open. Queen Elizabeth performed the reopening ceremony in 1990.
