We made the most of the beautiful weather today and went for a walk along the Grand Union Canal. This picturesque waterway is so close to us in Abbots Langley and when I got home I was keen to discover more.
The Grand Union Canal is as the name suggests an amalgamation of several independent waterways that had been built to improve the communication links between the vibrant heart of London, through the rolling hills of the Chilterns and on to Birmingham. It is 137 miles long and has 166 locks. The canal tow path was busy today with families like ourselves out for a walk, joggers or cyclists enjoying the peace and sunshine.
