The Canal Museum, Stoke Bruerne
A pretty place just the other side of the M1, it has locks, a museum, a pub and opportunities for a canal boat trip - a tranquil day out.
Housed on two floors of an historic corn mill, overlooking the Grand Union Canal, a treasure trove about our waterways. Watch the canal boats come and go through the locks, enjoy a pub lunch.
