Barge on Canal - A watercolour painting by John W Johnston

Barge on Canal

In the 18th Century, the Grand Union Canal was built connecting Northampton to the Midlands. The River Nene, on which Northampton sits, was made navigable to the sea in 1761. This combination brought new trade and prosperity to the county and the banks of the river would have been lined with barges carrying their cargos.

Near to Northampton is Stoke Bruerne, famous for its seven lock gates and the still navigable canal tunnel.
