A full colour map of the Warwickshire Ring and Ashby-de-la-Zouch Canal suitable for both waterways and leisure users.
This map gives detailed coverage of the Warwickshire Ring, Ashby-de-la-Zouch Canal and up to Fradley Junction, on the Trent & Mersey Canal, with emphasis on the waterways and information useful and relevant to users of the waterways without neglecting other leisure users. The map detail is complimented by information panels and photographs.
The Warwick Ring comprises the Grand Union Canal, from Napton Junction to Birmingham, the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal, the Coventry Canal and the northern section of the Oxford Canal, from Hawkesbury Junction to Napton Junction.
This 100 mile ring offers a mixture of both tranquil rural and urban cruising. Whilst possible to complete in week, it is perhaps better suited a more leisurely trip of a fortnight.
This allows more time to explore some of the delights including elegant Royal Leamington Spa, and Warwick and it's fine medieval castle. Moor in central Birmingham's Gas Street Basin and enjoy all the culture, cuisine and shopping our second city has to offer. Those seeking thrills should visit Drayton Manor near Tamworth or the town's indoor ski slope. A slower paced diversion is to be had continuing up the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal from Fazeley Junction to Fradley Junction, the junction of the Trent and Mersey Canal with the northern section of the Coventry Canal. Enjoy a drink in The Swan after the rigours of the 11 mile lock free cruise before returning to Fazeley Junction to continue along the eastern side of the Warwickshire Ring.
The eastern side of the ring provides near lock free cruising with Glascote Locks, the flight at Atherstone, Hillmorton's paired locks and the stop lock at Hawkesbury Junction the only ones to hinder progress. This includes the 22 mile Ashby-de-la-Zouch Canal, a contour canal, it meanders through rolling countryside skirting the edge of Hinckley otherwise encountering few villages. The canal passes Bosworth Field, site of the final battle in The War Of The Roses, now a country park with a heritage centre with exhibitions, re-enactments, falconry and battlefield walks.
At Hawkesbury Junction continue along the Coventry Canal into the city from which it takes its name, along a 5 mile lock free stretch of canal lined with artworks to the restored basin close to the heart of the city.

EU customers - IMPORTANT: You will be required to pay import VAT (tax) at your local rate to your postal delivery service before any goods are delivered. Since 2021 you have not been charged British VAT (at 20%) on any purchases or P&P charges, however, with effect from 1 January 2022, the rules regarding importing from outside the EU changed and import VAT is now payable on any value of goods imported into the EU. This is separate to any tariff which may or may not be chargeable on the goods due to their country of origin. Please also note that we are legally required to declare the correct value of your purchase which is used to calculate the tax and any tariff duty. Failure to pay the import charges will result in the goods being returned to the UK. Our terms and conditions have been updated to reflect this situation.

Cancellations - non personalised/bespoke items
The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations) provide consumers with the right to a 'cooling-off' period to allow you to change your mind. Under these regulations, you have the right to cancel your order, without explanation, within 14 days of delivery (starting the day after you receive the goods) and to return the goods for a refund within a further 14 days (28 days in total). The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.
