We watched as schoolchildren opened up the loch for a narrowboat to come through. Very interesting. Walk along the canal and see the narrow boats moored up or coming along. We walked to the tunnel, shame the blacksmith building was closed and the art store.

had a brief visit to Stoke Bruerne in March. A few hours but the weather was good and the ride on the barge enjoyable. Quiet, peaceful and a lovely little pub if you are into that kind of thing

Visited Stoke Bruerne this week on a beautiful sunny day. The trip along the canal on the "Charlie" was interesting and took you a short way into the tunnel. Good value at £3.50 for an adult. The canal side walks are very pretty as is...More
