The Ashby Canal north of Bulkington, Warwickshire
The Ashby Canal north of Bulkington, Warwickshire
At present the canal provides 22 miles of lock free cruising. Originally it went as far north as Conkers (near Moira), but never reached Ashby-de-la-Zouch. Coal was carried on a regular commercial basis until the 1960s. At present the canal stops at Snarestone, though the eight mile stretch to Moira is being (or has been) restored.
