Leaving the river Thames at Brentford and travelling through the Home Counties to Birmingham and Leicester, the Grand Union Canal wends its way through sylvan countryside and market towns on its route from London to the Midlands. Looking at the group of canals that came together to form the Grand Union, Ian J. Wilson tells the story of this picturesque waterway and looks at the impact it has had in changing the landscape it has travelled through. Using antique postcards and photographs to illustrate the story, he takes us on a trip along the main line to Braunston and along the various cuts at the southern end of the canal including the Paddington, Slough, Wendover, Aylesbury and Old Stratford & Buckingham Arms.
