passing through BBN’s three counties. Everyone is welcome to join us.

Saturday 30th July  A Grand Union of Three Counties

A 26 mile linear canal group walk, with coach transport from Leighton Buzzard to Stoke Bruerne, then we’ll be walking back to Leighton Buzzard along the Grand Union Canal. 
The coach will be leaving Leighton Buzzard Railway Station at 7.30 am and there is a £5 contribution to travel cost.

 

We start our walk from the attractive canal village of Stoke Bruerne and a flight of 7 locks, soon passing though tranquil countryside with some fine open views, to reach the locks at Cosgrove and the 200 year old Iron Trunk Aqueduct which carries the canal over the River Ouse. The canal contours around Milton Keynes to reach the locks at Fenny Stratford.  Then comes more pleasant countryside and locks and the end of the walk at Leighton Buzzard.

Shorter distances are possible (9 or 16 miles) walking to Wolverton or Milton Keynes station with train back to Leighton Buzzard.

There will be a downloadable certificate upon completion.

Please book your place via Gill Bunker E: bbn@ldwa.org.uk  
Note: Your £5 contribution will be required to confirm your seat on the coach
