Listing Details

For those in search of a tranquil escape from the town, the Aylesbury Arm of the Grand Union Canal is a destination not to be missed.

Nestled amidst the picturesque countryside of Buckinghamshire, the Aylesbury Arm stretches approximately 6.5 miles, offering a serene escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life. With its rich natural surroundings, the Aylesbury Arm is a destination that captivates both locals and visitors alike.

Constructed in the early 19th century, the canal served as a vital trade route, transporting goods and supplies between Aylesbury and the mainline canal network. The Aylesbury Arm joins the Grand Union Canal at Bulbourne/Marsworth, a broader canal running from London to Birmingham. Today, remnants of the Aylesbury Arms industrial past can still be seen in the form of charming old bridges, lock cottages, and a restored canal basin.

The canal is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts, with an abundance of birdlife, ducks, swans, and even the occasional kingfisher. Whether you choose to cruise, walk, or cycle along the towpath, every moment spent on the Aylesbury Arm is a feast for the senses.

    A thankfully hidden gem. I just wish I didn’t have to walk a mile further out of town every year to get away from the housing. That’s not to say the canal in the town isn’t a nice place to be. It’s the most serene part of it, with plenty of flora and fauna to observe and wonder at throughout the seasons. It’s my favourite place to be walking outdoors in Aylesbury.
