The charity making life better by water

Aerial view of a canal with a narrowboat entering a lock, surrounded by fields and buildings.


The canal at Braunston is where the Grand Union Canal and Oxford Canal canals meet. This busy, but splendid rural setting has lots of amenities available at Braunston Marina and at the pretty village of Braunston, two minutes away on the hill above the junction.

The Stop House is home to our welcome station at Braunston - a place to stop for a chat with our friendly volunteers and pick up some information about the local area.
