We are now in our 25th season here at Bottom Lock Braunston and we hope we now have one of the best canalside shops on the cut.

We stock a full range of provisions - we even bake bread on the premises - and if you have run out of anything (or forgotten to bring it with you!) then we can usually help.

We also have a large range of giftware, either to treat yourself or to buy that gift for your neighbour for looking after the cat or the plants while you are away

To regular boaters we are probably best known for our comprehensive specialist stocks, including over 300 canal related books, maps and guides, a full range of bridge plaques and horse brasses, over 50 canal related needlecraft kits, framed canal prints and a large selection of hand painted canal ware.

During the last year we have added more pages to our web site so that we can show you many of these ranges. We still have a few more to add so please keep watching, or, of course, if you are in the area pop in and see us, have a browse and maybe an ice cream if we are lucky with the weather!

All the best

Carol and Fred Barnes
