Grand Union South

Seven nights Cruise - Cassiobury Park

Hours cruising each way to:
Cassiobury Park: 25 hrs*
26 miles, 51 locks

*These are approximate hours and do not account for possible delays.

Head south from Leighton Buzzard up the Chiltern Hills towards the beautiful village of Marsworth keeping an eye out for the lion cut in the chalk on the side of Whipsnade hill. The reservoirs at Marsworth which were built to supply water to the canal summit, are now also used as extensive nature reserves. Wild-life is in abundance and it is very rewarding to have an afternoon or evening stroll around the lakes and study the bird life.
From Marsworth travel up the seven locks to Bulbourne. The canal then enters a three mile cutting past Tring Station to Cowroast. Be on special alert as kingfishers are often spotted in the cutting. At Cowroast the canal starts its descent to London, passing through Berkhamsted close to the old castle, outdoor swimming pool and leisure parks., then on down the Colne Valley towards the Thames Valley and London. Although there are more locks as you cross the Chiltern Hills than travelling north, the canal is extremely pretty through places such as Bourne End and Cassiobury Park.
