Canals: Grand Junction Part 2

Once the Grand Junction was open it linked to the two Warwick Canals to provide a route from London to the Midlands. It wasn't the only way, goods from Birmingham could use two routes.

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.
