The Grand Union Canal
The Grand Union Canal The canal runs from London to Birmingham through the middle of the town and is easily accessible from many locations. For an unusual day out you could hire a canal boat in the town from www.canalholidays.co.uk.
The easiest way to reach it is to take a walk (20 minutes) or cycle ride (10 minutes) across Billington Road into Chartmoor Road, through the Grovebury industrial park to the roundabout, and follow the old railway track to the bridge across the canal. From here you can walk southwards to the Grove Lock pub or north to the town centre. Alternatively you can catch the number 36 or Dash Direct bus to the canal bridge in the centre of the town (approximately 10 minutes).
The Grand Union Canal is a great place for walking, cycling,
angling and boating and provides wonderful views of the Bedfordshire Countryside. For more information visit www.waterscape.com.
