Stoke Bruerne is a pretty canal village on the Grand Union Canal. The Canal Museum is housed in a beautiful old corn mill on the towpath and in the heart of the village.
The atmospheric mill is a sympathetic setting for displays about navvies and engineers, canal families and the changing fortunes of our waterways.
There is a museum audio guide that explains and brings to life the surrounding landscape. The Blissworth tunnel, locks, a turning point and a weighing machine all make this a particulary interesting visit.
The Museum Cafe is a popular pit stop and the perfect place to watch the world go by in this tranquil and historic setting.
