Then and Now: The Oxford Canal at Napton on the Hill

As a Warwickshire County Record Office volunteer, I have been sorting through and then cataloguing the late Roger Smith’s collection of photographs (PH1239) – transparencies mostly of Warwick, Leamington Spa, Stratford on Avon, South Warwickshire villages and some of the water ways. When checking details of transparencies relating to the Oxford Canal at Napton I discovered that earlier photographs existed, some of exactly the same views, already held by the record office.

There are just a few of the many thousands of interesting photographs to be found in the record office.
