Wootton Wawen Aqueduct

Wootton Wawen aqueduct, in the Warwickshire village of Wootton Wawen, is one of three aqueducts on the Southern section of the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal. Like the other two (Yarningale and Edstone) the Wootton Wawen aqueduct is unusual in having the towpath on the same level as the canal bottom.

The aqueduct was erected in 1813 by the Stratford Canal Company and is a cast iron trough with integrated towpath.
