Northampton – Banbury – Royal Leamington Spa

February 15, 2009

Banbury: Heading north along the Oxford Canal through Oxfordshire. Oxfordshire is a county of unique landscape. Kinks below Wormleighton. Through empty country and no villages to Napton. To Wigrams Turn. Cycle west to Royal Leamington Spa.
From Royal Leamington Spa across empty farmland via the astonishing Braunston Junction and Braunston Tunnel to Northampton. Norton Junction with The Grand Union Canal. Turn south via Nether Heyford for Northampton. The long Blisford Tunnel to Stoke Bruerne. A branch at Cosgrove ends up as a dry creek. Milton Keynes ahead. The Grand Union Canal branches north to Rugby at Braunston Junction.
