Canal Museum, Stoke Bruerne

Canal Museum, Stoke Bruerne

 

Found in the heart of the beautiful village of Stoke Bruerne on the Grand Union Canal, The Canal Museum is a treasure trove of stories, films, collections and displays all about our waterways.

The Canal Museum is housed in a historic corn mill, and provides a fascinating look at the history of Britain's canals.

With a wide range of exhibits and a free audio commentary to guide you as you explore, the museum is the key to understanding the rich waterway heritage of Stoke Bruerne and the Grand Union Canal.

Blisworth Tunnel
Just a short walk north from the museum along the towpath to the mouth of Blisworth Tunnel and the woodland walk, or a stroll south down a flight of seven locks, you'll find the wildlife reserve in the former brickworks.

There are musical and theatrical events, and themed weekends all year round. Children can dress in traditional canal costume and there's a gift shop, picnic area and Waterside Café with views over the canal.

Holy Well, Southam

Holy Well, Southam

 

The Holy Well (2)
A Scheduled Ancient Monument and Grade 2
Listed Building. It is reputed to have been used
by monks at Stoneythorpe - hence the Holy Well.
In 1761 the Holy Well was specifically excluded
from the Enclosure Act with the proviso that it
should be fenced with oak posts and rails and
free access to the Well was to be provided for all
Southam inhabitants.
The current stonework was probably built late
18th / early 19th C. with further repairs around
1926.
Following improvements in the water supply in
2004, sympathetic restoration was carried out in
2005/6 supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
This water is exceptionally cold and comes from
below the quarry area on the Coventry Road.
The water was reputed to be very efficacious for
many eye ailments.

The hiding place of the gunpowder plotters. And of course, the creation of the greatest game the world has ever seen. Enjoy Rugby.
