Your journey begins in Cropredy, a quaint village bursting with surprises. Dock at the wharf bridge and stock up at the nearby shop while conveniently disposing of any litter.

But Cropredy isn't just another sleepy village. Venture a short walk from the canal and discover a delightful playground, perfect for the younger members of your crew needing a break from the boat. And for the adults, two charming pubs await – the Brasenose Arms and the Red Lion, where rumors of resident ghosts add to the allure. Don't miss the grand sandstone church boasting an impressive clock, a testament to the village's rich history.

Despite its tranquil facade, Cropredy springs to life in August with the bustling annual Folk Festival, now among Europe's largest. Delve deeper into history as you learn about the pivotal English Civil War battle fought here in 1644, revealing the village's hidden significance.

As you bid adieu to Cropredy and navigate through the picturesque lock, enjoy occasional glimpses of scenic valleys beyond the lush hedges. We'd advise you not to turn your boat around here, as you may get more than you bargained for.
