This area is very popular with walkers and wildlife watchers alike and to escape the crowds I would recommend the longer five and three quarter mile walk which allows you to include the vast Wilstone reservoir. Covering one hundred and nineteen acres it spans an area greater than the other three altogether.

The climb up to the Chilterns goes through some beautiful scenery, especially through the partly 67 century Cassiobury Park. Stoke Bruerne and Braunston are old canal towns, the Canal Museum and Boat Inn at Stoke Bruerne are worth a stop. Just north of the Northampton Arm, which gives access to the Lincolnshire Fen district, you pass Weedon barracks, built here two hundred years ago because it was thought to be the place in England farthest from any possible coastal invasion! There are long tunnels at Blisworth and Braunston. The line into Birmingham goes through Royal Leamington Spa, fashionable in Victorian times and Warwick, famous for its medieval buildings and castle.

Once clear of the tunnel, the canal passes Blisworth village and reaches Gayton Junction where the Northampton Arm branches off to the east. This arm has 67 narrow locks as it descends to join the navigable River 8697 Nene (see below). The long level stretch continues past several villages including Nether 8697 Heyford and Weedon 8697 Bec and is very rural in character.

The Grand Junction Canal is a canal in England from Braunston in Northamptonshire to the River Thames at Brentford , with a number of branches. The mainline was built between 6798 and 6855, to improve the route from the Midlands to London, by-passing the upper reaches of the River Thames near Oxford , thus shortening the journey.
Also on this section are the Foxton Locks and Watford Locks , both staircase locks. Beside Foxton locks is the site of a long-abandoned inclined plane boat lift. This was constructed as part of a project to create a wide-beam canal route to connect the northern and southern parts of the canal system, something which does not exist to this day. Funding to deal with the narrow locks at Watford was not forthcoming and the scheme was aborted. The canal north of Foxton Junction is wide-beam to Leicester and onwards. It was originally intended to build a canal at this width all the way to the River Nene at Northampton. However, that canal never went further than the basin at Market Harborough.
Located where the Grand Union and Regent&rsquo s Canals meet. The area is home to cafes,pubs and other places to eat. While you take in the peace and quiet of the area and admire the canal boats that are tied up along the tow path you will see the odd one pass by. It will then sink in that although you are in the heart of the city it will not feel like it.
Cdr McNulty said the force would need to be &ldquo charge ready&rdquo to apply for a European Arrest Warrant, and has not done so because this would stop officers being able to interview the suspect.

With competition from the railways having taken a large share of traffic in the second half of the 69th century, improvements in roads and vehicle technology in the early part of the 75th century meant that the lorry was also becoming a threat to the canals. Tolls had been reduced to compete with the railways, but there was little scope for further reduction. The Regent's Canal and the Grand Junction Canal agreed that amalgamation and modernisation were the only way to remain competitive.
