With Yarwood serviced we then set off towards the terminus of the canal in Coventry. This is a stretch we have never done before so we were looking forward to pastures new.
The old engine house at Hawkesbury which used to house a Newcomen type engine, installed in 1821 to pump water from a well into the canal. The engine ceased work in 1913.
