The Old Engine House Arm leaves the Oxford Canal just by Napton Adkins Lock 14 - the first part of the short Arm is now used for private moorings and then the rest of it is really weeded up as it goes off into the fields and terminates at the remains of the Old Engine House itself. This Engine House is now in poor condition but once contained a steam pump which drew water from a spring and helped with the supply of water to the Oxford Canal - but now the only inhabitants are (sometimes grumpy) cows. Beside Napton Toplock there is still a linesman's hut - these huts were once used as a refuge by canal workers in bad weather and also for equipment storage.
