Travel north along the Ouzel Valley through the parks of Milton Keynes and over the Aqueducts at Wolverton and Cosgrove and then on to the picturesque Northamptonshire village of Stoke Bruerne. Take your boat up through the flight of seven locks and on through the nearly two mile long Blisworth Tunnel and on to Gayton Junction. Continue on through Northamptonshire and its attractive stone villages to Weedon, reputed to be the centre of England. Up the Buckby flight of seven locks to Norton Junction then turn left at Braunston and continue on to Napton Junction and turn right, back on to the Grand Union Canal. Cruise on through Royal Leamington Spa and on to Warwick and its famous castle which is worth a visit. 
After Warwick, continue up the Hatton locks to Kingswood Junction and turn left and left again on to the narrow South Stratford Canal with its narrow locks to Stratford Basin which is in the centre of the medieval market town, close to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.
