The charity making life better by water

Towpath lined with wooden posts


Bring your family on a day out to Thrupp, the pretty canalside village just north of Kidlington on the Oxford Canal. From here the canal closely follows the line of the Cherwell Valley.

Rose covered terrace houses line the towpath along this stretch of the Oxford Canal - part of the Oxford Canal Walk. And no visit would be complete without a spot of afternoon tea in one of the canalside cafes or pubs.
