Canal enclosure walls to south, Weedon Bec - Daventry

Canal walls, early C19. Part of an extraordinary military complex built during the Napoleonic era. Brickwork is falling away, copings missing, damaged by vegetation growth, in need of repointing. The whole site was underused for many years and was left in poor condition. It was sold in early 2013 and is now home to various businesses. The owner is considering further development. A condition survey of the most at risk elements of the site was carried out with the support of a Historic England grant. A repair strategy is being formulated.
