We had decided to take to turn right along the Wendover Arm Canal and see what progress had been made with the restoration. This canal is lovely and rural although the towpath edge is somewhat overgrown. Overhanging bushes were also a problem.
Originally this canal linked the Grand Union Canal at Bulbourne near Star Top End in Hertfordshire to the town of Wendover in Buckinghamshire. The first 1.3 miles is navigable with a winding hole at the terminus. Here we moored and walked to the site.
Seven years ago we also walked the canal route and although parts seem worse now than then, work is progressing on other parts.
