Braunston lies at the junction of the Grand Union and Oxford Canals in a rural setting on the border of Warwickshire and Northamptonshire. The village, on the hill above the canal, thrived for over 150 years on the canal trade – carrying goods from the Midlands to London. Now it is a centre for leisure activities and boasts by far and away the busiest stretch of canal anywhere in the country.
