This canal is a 78-mile narrow canal linking Oxford to 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 Hawkesbury junction in Bedworth just north of Coventry. The Oxford Canal passes through the Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and Warwickshire countryside and is considered one of the most scenic canals in Britain. The canal was once an important artery of trade between the English Midlands and London and is now highly popular among pleasure boaters. I sometimes think I could live the life of a canal bargee but only in the summer!!!
