The Aylesbury Arm of the Grand Union Canal was completed in 1815.
8th Jan 2018 12:00am to 28th Feb 2018 11:59pm
We are undertaking works to improve the surface of the towpath, which is being funded by Buckinghamshire County Council. During this time it is necessary to close off the towpath for access.
The arm branches off from the Grand Union Canal at Marsworth, near the Tring reservoirs, less than a mile from the start of the Wendover Arm, and heads west for six and a quarter miles to the county town of Buckinghamshire.
Once in Aylesbury you can visit the town's impressive new theatre, take advantage of the many eating and drinking options or visit the Town's County Museum and Roald Dahl Children's Gallery.
