Canal Museum Museums
Housed in a restored cornmill in the picturesque village of Stoke Bruerne on 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 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.
Always full of interesting items, the Museum Shop stocks fine quality souvenirs, postcards, painted canalware and a wonderful selection of waterway gifts, guides and publications. In particular we offer the most comprehensive range of canal books in the country.
There are also 3 restaurants, a tea room and 2 pubs in the village. The village is a beautiful example of a traditional canal village, built mainly from the honey coloured local stone. One of the pair of locks is no longer operational but now contains a boat weighing machine complete with narrowboat. .
