The New Inn on the grand union canal

I have always been a Canal lover, I even sent six months living on a Narrowboat, back in 2007 and it was one of the most wonderful times in my life, I really enjoyed it and would love the opportunity to do so once more.  Being based in Northampton which is on the Grand Union Canal, I was mainly moored at Gayton, which a wonderful stretch of water as there is over 10 miles of uninterrupted waterway without locks, with a pub at each and as well as in the middle.....perfect.

At one end of the stretch is Stoke Bruerne, which is just south of the Blisworth tunnel, to the other end a flight of locks called 'Whilton locks'

At the top lock there is a charming canalside pub called the New Inn, which is on the A5, by road. The Beer garden is right on the lock and offers a front row seat to view the passing boats.  Not only is this a beautifully located pub, but is also a great place to eat and enjoy the scenery.

Just up from the New Inn, there is the junction with the Leicester arm, which runs up through Market Harborough.
