The charity making life better by water

Stoke Bruerne Canal Partnership

The Stoke Bruerne Canal Partnership have put together films to show you more of Stoke Bruerne's boating history, how locks work, and more.

Up to 50,000 gallons can be lost everytime water flows out of a lock to allow a boat to change levels. Learn how side ponds help conserve water.

Listen to a commercial boat operator describing the challenges of delivering coal in the second half of the twentieth century.

Building Blisworth Tunnel

Using illustrations by Brian Collings, Peter Ralley describes how Blisworth Tunnel was built.

And watch how boats were 'legged' through tunnels at a time when horses were still used to pull boats along the canal.
