The Oxford Canal is a 78-mile-long (126 km) narrow canal in Central England linking Oxford with Coventry via Banbury and Rugby. It connects with the River Thames at Oxford, to the Grand Union Canal at the villages of Braunston and Napton-on-the-Hill, and to the Coventry Canal at Hawksbury Junction in Bedworth just north of Coventry. The Oxford Canal passes mainly through the Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and Warwickshire countryside and is often considered to be one of the most scenic canals in Britain. It was once an important artery of trade between East Midlands and London and is now highly popular among pleasure boaters.
