SP7843 : Grand Union Canal: Thrupp Wharf Winding Hole

taken 4 years ago, near to Cosgrove, Northamptonshire, Great Britain

Grand Union Canal: Thrupp Wharf Winding Hole
Grand Union Canal: Thrupp Wharf Winding Hole
A winding hole is a deliberately widened reach of the canal that enables long narrowboats to turn through 180 degrees. Old Ordnance Survey maps show that this one at Thrupp Wharf has been in existence since at least 1884, when the site was known as Castlethorpe Wharf after the nearby village to the north-east. The entrance to the newly constructed Thrupp Wharf Marina to the right is off the winding hole. SP7843 : Cosgrove: The Navigation Inn at Thrupp Wharf is in the distance.
