LOCATION: Stoke Bruerne is well known for its idyllic location on the Grand Union Canal and is a popular destination for tourists, whether on a day trip to sit and relax by the waterside, walk along the towpaths or arriving by barge and mooring for a few days. There is a popular Waterways Museum and other facilities within the village including a Primary School, Cricket Club and waterside pubs and restaurants. Secondary education is provided at Roade School Sports College at the nearby village of Roade and leisure facilities in the surrounding area include horse racing at Towcester, motor racing at Silverstone and golf at Collingtree, Silverstone and Whittlebury, as well as horse riding trails and many country walks. Stoke Bruerne has a fabulous sense of community and pride, reflected in several events throughout the year, such as the ‘Canal Festival’ held every June or the ‘Village at War’ weekend held in late September or early October. The village offers a slow pace of life and escape from the pressures of modern living.
