New Canal Plans Unveiled

A new canal first discussed in 1793 is a step closer to becoming a reality as planning permission is sought to create a two-mile stretch of waterway.

Plans will be submitted to Daventry District Council in the next few weeks for a new arm of the Grand Union Canal, half a mile south of Braunston Tunnel.

The plans were first proposed in 1793 in the Grand Junction Canal Act and are a key element in Daventry District Council’s master plan for town centre redevelopment.
