Banbury to Napton
From here the course of the canal is erratic and meandering travelling under many brick-arched bridges. The canal travels West, then doubles back on itself flowing East towards Stoneton Manor. Here a steep ridge sets it back on course towards Napton.
The route towards Marston Doles and Napton takes you through rolling Warwickshire countryside. On arriving at Marston Doles the landscape opens up and the windmill at Napton comes into view. From here it is downhill into Napton so you can see for miles.
At the Old Engine House Arm you can turn your boat around in preparation for your return journey back to Oxford. If you like a walk there is The Folly Pub at the bottom of the flight of locks.
