Skirting the honeystone villages of the Cotswolds, the Oxford Canal is one of the country's most delightful and popular cruising waterways. It is a charming, meandering canal which passes through some of England's loveliest countryside to the very heart of historic Oxford, the city of dreaming spires.
The Oxford Canal was completed in 1790 to link the Midlands coalfields to the River Thames and London, but this industrial past belies its striking contemporary beauty. From an unpromising start the canal winds southwards through Warwickshire and threads his way along the valley of the reed-flecked River Cherwell, through an enticing landscape of soft and gentle pasture lands, fringed by ancient villages whose very names speak of a lost past.
Whether planning your holiday or simply exploring the canals of Britain, the Waterways World videos provide the perfect introduction. They provided a guide to the main places of beauty and historic importance and provide a real feel for the nature of each canal.
