The Canal Museum, Stoke Bruerne and Althorp House CANCELLED

Althorp House

On our journey to Althorpe we will stop off for a short visit to the delightful village of Stoke Bruerne on the Grand Union Canal and its treasured secret, the Canal Museum.  Originally set up in the 1960’s in an old corn wharf mill, a free audio guide will take you on a journey through the stories and traditions of Britain’s historic canals.  The village itself is also full of surprises with cottages that have been here for over 200 years and the towpath to the Blisworth Tunnel where boaters used to ‘leg’ their boats through the narrow passage.

Following on from our visit to Spencer House last year we now have the opportunity to see the Spencer family’s Country Estate.  “Althorp House was built in 1508, by the Spencer Family, for the Spencers, as it has remained for the last 500 years.  The house contains one of the finest private collections of art, furniture and ceramics in the world, including numerous paintings by Rubens, Reynolds, Lely, Gainsborough and Van Dyck.”

You can also wander around the gardens, the current exhibition, Cafe and Gift Shop in the Stables.

We should arrive at Althorp soon after 12 noon and will leave at 4.30 pm
