Photographer's Note

In and around Stoke Bruerne you’ll find the Blisworth Tunnel, historic locks and bridges, a weighing machine, winding hole and traditional canal pubs – all the features of a living canal village.

Nearly all the homes and buildings in the village have been here 200 years or more. Little has changed since the heyday of Britain's canals, between the early and mid-1800s.

The two village pubs have a long heritage, with The Boat Inn having been established in 1807, and the Navigation Inn in 1822. Both were built to support the new trade bought by the canal.

Stoke Bruerne is set in the heart of rural Northamptonshire. Set off in any direction and you'll find unspoilt countryside, tranquil lanes, pretty villages and wild flowers and birds to watch and enjoy.

Thank you to http//canalrivertrust.org.uk for the information.
