About Stoke Bruerne

Lying just south of Northampton this beautiful canal village offers a wealth of interest to any boating enthusiast or any country lover. Two and three storey brick built cottages line the banks of this delightful stretch of the Grand Union Canal, whilst in the village itself, most of the properties are of a lovely, honey coloured, local stone.

Stoke Bruerne Museum, housed in a restored cornmill, offers a fascinating insight into the life and times of over 200 years of inland waterway history. Displays cover the importance of canals to the industrial revolution, right up to the present day, when mostly these beautiful waterways are used for the sole purpose of leisure and pleasure..

There are pleasant canal side walks, and you can follow the towpath down the flight of seven locks. Trips along the canal are on offer providing the opportunity to explore picturesque waterbeds and river wildlife in a haze of tranquillity from the comfort of a narrow boat. The Boat Inn, welcoming canal side watering hole, has been in the same family since 1877 when it was a haven for the men and women working on barges trawling the Grand Union Canal. It extends the same warm welcome to today's boaters.

Exploring this lovely place is a great joy, there is so much to see and do. There are many other interesting market towns and villages in the area with the larger town of Northampton being just a short distance away.
