Grand Union Canal

Description

The Aylesbury and Wendover Arms of the Grand Union Canal are connected to the main River Thame via Bear and Wendover Brooks. Tring sewage treatment works discharges into the canal. We do not know very much about the canal’s status as it is not monitored in the same way by the Environment Agency. However, both Arms are popular locations for walkers, cyclists, runners and in particular anglers, and we hope to gain more information through volunteers and surveys which will help us to update this page. If you have any information then please let us know.

You can find out a lot more about the canal and how you can enjoy it here.

Map

Small Waters

The river isn’t the only water that we are concerned with. There are multiple small waters including ponds, ditches and steams. All of which are highlighted on the map below.grand-union-canal-small-waters

Projects

We currently have no projects planned for this area, if you have any suggestions then we would love to hear from you.

Surveys

Currently there are very few points being monitored along the two Arms of the Grand Union Canal in our catchment, we would love to extend our volunteer monitoring in this area, you can find out more about our volunteer monitoring and how you could get involved in monitoring yourself here.

Other Groups

There are currently no groups that are working specifically on the two Arms of Grand Union Canal that we know of. If you would like to get involved by starting a local group in your area, then please get in touch.
