These are closer views of the canal taken from both sides of the bridge. The first shows the lock more clearly. The view from the opposite side shows the area in front of the canalside cafe the Lock Inn.
There are some lovely views of the town from the cottage. The first picture shows a view looking directly forward from the top bedroom. It shows the buildings on the opposite side of the canal. The second picture is a view of the town from directly outside the cottage. It shows a view across the canal and the park to the town centre.
These images show the area on the opposite side of the canal from the cottage. One shows the park which is a very short walk across the bridge and along the towpath.This is the main part of the park, there is also a smaller area adjacent to it, towards the Tithe Barn and the river. The park has two children's play areas and plenty of open space for ballgames, there are also three tennis courts here, which are free to use. The other picture shows part of the towpath leading down from the cafe, the access to the park is just past this point.
Leading on from the park is an area which houses the wonderfully preserved Tithe barn. The building is always open to the public and is impressive both inside and out. Just on from the barn, is the Barton Farm Country Park, through which the River Avon runs. The river can be crossed by the historic 'Pack Horse' bridge
