Both Ends (12) : Wendover Arm

The Wendover Arm of the Grand Union Canal is an eleven mile now-partially watered canal which was originally built to act as a water feed from springs near Wendover to the Grand Junction Canal at Bulbourne. The canal was opened in 1799 as a fully navigable waterway though became partially unnavigable in 1904. The canal always having suffered from water leaks. Recent work has restored navigation from Bulbourne Junction as far as Little Tring Farm (just over two kilometres) and work is continuing.

Both Ends (11) : Aylesbury Arm

The Aylesbury Arm is a ten kilometre long arm of the Grand Union Canal. It was opened in 1814 to transport goods to and from Aylesbury to the rest of the canal network. The terminus basin of the canal is in central Aylesbury. This basin is now the focus of a great deal of redevelopment, like all canals the trade is now leisure cruisers.

The other end of the canal is at Marsworth where it joins the Grand Union. The below photo shws the arm just beyond the junction. Ten kilometres more and you can shop at Aylesbury's Waitrose!
