Landmark  Properties   Close  to  Canals
For my choice today I have selected properties which we have visited from the canal system.  
Clicking on the name of any of these properties will take you to the full details on the Landmark Trust site.

Ingestre hall, stables and church which Wren designed are walking distance from the Trent and Mersey canal, Ingestre Pavilion, however,  is more easily accessed by bus from Great Haywood.

There are lovely views of this from Tixall Wide on the Staffs & Worcs near Great Haywood Jct and the bus from there to Stafford passes the property

Tixall Gatehouse viewed through the morning mist from Gecko moored overnight on the Wide which was constructed for the benefit of the landowner.

A very easy walk up from the Trent & Mersey canal where the Derby Canal used to join it, Swarkestone Pavilion is impressive in any light.

Leave the T&M canal for a while and take a stroll up or down the Tardebigge locks on the Worcs & Birmingham. Here the Landmark Trust have rescued one of the lock cottages

One canalside property which we have yet to visit is a barrel-roofed Lengthsman's Cottage  on the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal.
