Grand Union Canal

The Grand Union Canal
The Grand Union is a 137 mile (220km), 166 lock, 2 tunnel canal running between Brentford in London and Birmingham. It is the longest canal in Britain, and has 11 main arms and junctions. It takes over a week to navigate. The Leicester arm branches off at Norton Junction and runs 66 miles long through 59 locks (including 2 staircase locks at Foxton) and 2 tunnels to Leicester where it continues into the River Soar.

Walking the lines
A few years ago I read a book by Mark Mason "Walking the lines" in which he walked the route of the London Underground lines, overground. I will repeat this visiting all 270 stations (some more than once). My route tries to follow the line of the railway as closely as possible, using footpaths and roads.
