2016 Calendar features schoolchildren's photos

The Friends have jointly produced a calendar for 2016 with our colleagues at Stoke Bruerne Canal Partnership which features a series of stunning photographs taken by the children of Stoke Bruerne Primary School as part of the HLF funded Interpretation Project. The project which is coming to a close after two years will be marked by the installation of 10 interpretation panels along the canal corridor as well as other interpretation and directional signs.
The calendars, which are on sale in The Canal Museum Shop cost £3.99
