Oxford & Grand Union Canals, and Upper Thames Canal Guidebook

Coventry • Oxford • Market Harborough • London
Oxford & Grand Union Canals, and Upper Thames - Canal Guidebook

Two routes between the midlands and the south-east are at the heart of this Canal Companion, with the delightful upper reaches of the River Thames thrown in for good measure. The Oxford Canal features in its entirety, all the way from the outskirts of Coventry to the City of Dreaming Spires, one of the most beautiful canals in the country, whilst its towpath is a designated long distance foot path too.

Coverage of the mighty Grand Union commences at the canal centre of Braunston in Northamptonshire and runs all the way down to Brentford (where it links with Pearson’s Canal Companion to the Kennet & Avon and River Thames) and Paddington in central London. Also included are the branches to Northampton, Aylesbury, Wendover and Slough. Additionally, the Leicester Section of the Grand Union, up as far as the famous flight of locks at Foxton and Market Harborough, is also featured.
