After Braunston head north leaving the church spire behind you, through the three duplicated narrow locks at Hillmorton and on to the old market town of Rugby made famous by its public school.
Hawkesbury junction is where the Oxford Canal finishes and joins the Coventry canal. The Greyhound pub stands beside the junction where the boat people would congregate while awaiting orders to load from the Warwickshire coal fields.
Turning left takes you five miles to Coventry with its basin close to the centre of the city. A visit to the new cathedral is a must.
Marston Junction just a few miles north of Hawkesbury Junction on the Coventry Canal is where the Ashby Canal begins.
The Ashby Canal is a tranquil 21 mile lock free canal terminating north of Snarestone tunnel where the Globe Inn offers good food and beer. On the way you can explore 'Bosworth Field' battleground and visit the Shackerstone steam railway.
