The Ashby Canal near Bramcote, Warwickshire
The Ashby Canal near Bramcote, Warwickshire
The canal just sneaks into the corner of this grid square. My position was GPS confirmed, and it was pure chance that I pictured this stretch of water.

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. The canal was opened in 1804.
