Hatton to Shrewley

I enjoyed my visit to Hatton in the Summer so returned this morning, this time to travel along the Grand Union in the other direction towards Shrewley. In doing so i came up to the Shrewley Tunnel, now this 400m long tunnel doesn't have a towpath alongside so i had to climb the hill and go through the tunnel and then rejoin the canal on the other side. This is a very nice stretch of canal indeed, and you can see my photos here of course. Hatton Shrewley DSC_0541

Oxford Canal

Over the last couple of days i have visited Oxford for a short holiday and of course my trip included a canal walk along the Oxford Canal which terminates there (natch).

Now of course this is a Midlands Canal Blog and can Oxfordshire count as the Midlands? Personally i do think of Oxford as being at the very southern edge of the Midlands though some do include it in the South East. The Oxford Canal in any case goes up to Warwickshire... so can it be included here? Well its my blog so i decide... and its included! Here you can see the photos i took. Oxford Canal
