Places to Visit

Canal Museum

Canal Museum 2
 Housed in a restored corn mill on the bank of the Grand     Union  Canal, the museum collection vividly portrays the  heritage of 200 years of  inland waterways.

 This fascinating and colourful insight into a transport              system, fundamental to the industrial revolution in Britain, is complemented by  the 'living canal' outside with its flight of locks, boats and the Blisworth  Tunnel.

Explore the mysteries of this intriguing part of our heritage  through working models, videos, pictorial and three dimensional displays  portraying every aspect of the waterways. From amazing feats of engineering to  the shining brass and colourful decoration that contrasts so sharply with the  harsh reality of canal life, you will find something to interest all the  family.
