Grand Union North

One Week Cruise

Cruise as for the three day cruise continuing North through the Stoke Bruerne Locks and the Blisworth Tunnel, where you escape underground for 45 minutes. Do not worry you can still pass oncoming boats as the tunnel is 16 feet wide.
On through Northamptonshire and its attractive stone villages to Weedon, reputed to be the centre of England. Then on to Braunston junction where the Oxford to Coventry Canal crosses the London to Birmingham Grand Union Canal.

Braunston village grew up around the canal and became well known for the building of wooden narrow boats. The church steeple can be seen for miles around. This cruise gives the perfect introduction for a week's canal cruising with the passage of 27 locks, 2 aqueducts, 2 tunnels and the canal museum at Stoke Bruerne, not to mention the excellent canal side hostelries and for the younger crew members the many children's play areas in and around Milton Keynes.
Hours cruising to Braunston 21 hours each way.
