Where is the Arm?
The Wendover Arm links the picturesque village of Wendover in Buckinghamshire with the main Grand Union Canal at the Tring Summit in Hertfordshire. Nestled in the Chiltern Hills, the canal follows the 390 foot contour around the hills and has no locks.
It is possible to walk the entire Arm along the towpath, however boats are currently restricted to the first 1.5 miles from Bulbourne to a newly constructed winding hole at Little Tring.
The Wendover Arm starts at Wharf Road, Wendover, Bucks, HP22 6HF, although the water source is from a natural spring at Wellhead, near St Mary's Church.
The Arm flows from Wendover through the villages of Halton, Buckland Wharf, Drayton Beauchamp, Little Tring and 6 3/4
miles later it joins the main Grand Union Canal at Bulbourne
Junction, near Tring, Herts, HP23 5HF.
