Stoke Bruerne, Northamptonshire
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The museum tells the story of life on the canal and the building of the Blisworth Tunnel, a short distance outside the village. A short signposted walk leads along the canal towpath to the Tunnel, where a section of the original tunnel support system is preserved to view.
If you fancy a longer walk, the Grand Union Canal Walk path leads along the canal in both directions.
You can take trips along the canal from the Boat Inn, situated directly opposite the museum, and watch boats going through the lock. There is a paid parking lot behind the museum, off Chapel Lane.
