July 2015 Rugby to Hawkesbury Junction

The journey from Rugby to Hawkesbury Junction is characterised in part by the later straightening of the early meandering of the original canal route. This has resulted in there being many side, offshoots of the canal. Some are completely dry and unrecognisable but most are short stubs of canal into which boats can moor or marinas can be built.
