Grand Union Canal Walk: Wendover Arm

Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire

11 km / 7 miles
The Wendover Arm of the Grand Union Canal saw very little use by boats, mainly because of lack of water. The Wendover Arm Trust was formed to promote the restoration of the Wendover Arm; the canal is navigable as far as Little Tring and work is continuing on other sections. The towpath is in good condition throughout its length. It is a pretty stretch of canal in the Chiltern foothills.
