Leave the city north-eastwards along the, then join the Coventry and then the Oxford Canals to reach the Grand Junction at Braunston

Leave the City south-eastwards along the Warwick and Birmingham and Warwick and Napton Canals. At Napton a short section of the Oxford Canal is needed to reach the Grand Junction at Braunston

Either way the boats followed the Grand Junction to London.
