Stretton Arm, Oxford Canal
Stretton Arm, Oxford Canal
The Oxford Canal was one of the first generation of canals in the United Kingdom and was built following contours in a winding, circuitous route. In the 1820s the northern section, from Coventry to Braunston Junction (where it connected with the Grand Junction canal to London) was radically shortened by cutting off loops and meanders with embankments and cuttings. Some sections of the superseded loops remain in water and this is one, stretching a short way from the main line towards Stretton-under-Fosse: it is used for moorings and a boatyard.
