    Is this perchance the Leicester section of The Grand Union Canal?? If so, is this above Foxton Locks??

    Very respectable for a phone.

    Except the Triumph one which is grim, I wonder why.

    Thats a nice walk, Ambion Hill, start at Sutton Wharf, walk through the woods, up to the visitors centre, then to Shenton Station, then along the canal back to Sutton Wharf.

    Great place Bosworth, we (Welsh) came, ding dong One - Nil,
    Henry VII, great fly half :Wink:

    Do you walk the canals or bike them? My wife (Lee) and I love biking along the different canals we come across. We biked some of the Grand Union recently - Brentford to Little Venice. Whilst on the canal it's like an oasis of calm and hard to believe its winding its way through an incredibly built up area of London.

    Yourself and shifty have inspired me to get on the bike along the canals and rivers that we are blessed with in this part of the country. I used to do it regularly but have somehow got out of the habit. Armed with my S2 I'll see what I can find next week. :thumb: Must remember my lock just in case I stop at a couple of pubs on the way.:Smile:
