Wendover Arm Trust
We are a charity dedicated to the restoration of the Wendover Arm of the Grand Union Canal.
The Wendover Arm is a scenic 6 3/4 mile waterway in the Chiltern Hills, built in the late 18th century to supply water from a natural spring in Wendover to the summit of the Grand Union Canal at Tring. Sadly, the Arm was closed to navigation in 1904 due to persistent leakage.
Wendover Arm Trust was formed in the late 1980's as a voluntary charity whose sole aim is to restore the entire length of the canal to navigation from Wendover to Bulbourne Junction.
The first 2 1/2 miles have been completed and work is continuing on the middle section around Drayton Beauchamp.
Work is carried out by our team of restoration volunteers. All materials and plant hire are paid for from Trust Funds.
The Trust has over 600 members, who receive a quarterly newsletter to keep abreast of news and information.
