Yarningale Aqueduct is one of three aqueducts on a 4 miles (6 km) length of the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal in Warwickshire. It spans the Kingswood Brook near the village of Claverdon. All three aqueducts are unusual in that the towpaths are at the level of the canal bottom.
Originally built between 1812 and 1816 as a wooden structure, the aqueduct is a single-berth navigation over a local stream, and is approximately 42 feet (13 m) long. It leads into the 34th lock – "Bucket Lock" – on the canal, the middle of a three-lock flight in the Claverdon area.
