Slat Mill Bridge into Banbury on The Oxford Canal.

This section takes the canal along to the fairly busy Oxfordshire town of Banbury.

The towpath on this stretch of the canal is not too bad but since it is mostly a grass surface can be quite difficult if there has been rain around. Originally the Oxford Canal was built and used for moving coal to the South (particularly from the coal fields around Coventry) but these days it is the habitat of fishermen, cruise boats, cyclists, walkers, herons, kingfishers, fat ducks and a large number of private canal narrow boats.
