Wootton Wawen aqueduct

Next stop on our quick tour of places on the Stratford Canal was Wooton Wawen aqueduct. We knew we were there when we saw a narrowboat apparently above the roof of a pub. We parked in the pub car park and had a drink sitting in the garden by the canal, before walking round to have a look at the aqueduct itself.

I don't suppose you spotted the signs near the mooring that suggest the way to get to the boatyard or pub is by walking down a long lane past the farm shop and then up the main road that goes under the aqueduct. I'm glad I spotted some people walking along the bank opposite and went to see to realise there is a much shorter access that way.

We parked in the pub car park and walked down the road to see if we could get up to the aqueduct, and found we couldn't. So we had a drink in the pub garden, and while we were there saw people walking along that side and over the bridge. Looking at the map, it seems to be quite a long way if you mistakenly go via the road!
