Fancy a walk along the Grand Union Canal?
"I am planning on walking along the Grand Union Canal and I would love to have company so if you would like to join me on some stretches please contact me.
The canals and railways are close to each other and there are stations along the route so getting back to a car park is not too onerous. My full proposed itinerary is here.
Not sure about the next stretch Milton Keynes, Leighton Buzzard , Berkhampstead , Watford.
I have booked to stay in three places so my itinerary will not change from 3rd to 5th July. Will need to research accommodation for the next stretches so miles per day could change.

Fonnereau Way. We are pleased to report that the appeal to have this footpath removed has been dismissed. The detail should appear here within the next week or so (this page updated 6/4/15). Look for FPS/V3500/14A/2 under Suffolk County Council. Well done Geoff and everyone who has worked hard on this.

Attention Walk leaders

If at any time you want to add more information about your walk or you see an error in your published walk, please send details to webmaster. We will not change fundamental details such as place or time but can add more information about the route as the time gets closer. Worth checking walks you intend to join in case something interesting has been added. Please note this additional information will only be available in the walks listed in the Walk Finder.

Please Help

We are always looking for new walk leaders for both long and half day walks during the week and at weekends. New Leaders not only provide variety but ease the burden on established leaders. Help can always be given to those new to leadership.
If willing to lead please contact Gareth Evans the Programme Secretary. Contact details here or speak with him on a walk. See Getting involved for more details on leading walks.
