Vlog 150: Wending my way

Having turned around at Cowroast, my narrowboat journey on the Grand Union canal now continued north but with a diversion down the short length of the restored Wendover Arm. The navigable canal is only about 1.5 miles long so far and I found it quite narrow and shallow but quite scenic. I moored right at the far end where there’s a large winding hole. Then I went back up the Arm and down the Marsworth locks before pausing one lock before the end of the flight.

    A most beautiful spot to moor at the Winding Hole in the Wendover Arm. When I see grassy places like this, I think how much fun it would be to fly a Radio Control 2 Meter Glider using a High Start for launch. A perfect place for Glider landings.

  2. The Wendover arm look a lovely peaceful place to spend a few days. Are there any shops reasonably near where you spent the night?

    As to your question; looking at the silos, and the fact it seems a rural sort of area, I would hazard a guess that it has something to do with grain. A flour mill perhaps? That’s my theory anyway,

    • There was nothing around for miles as far as I could tell at the end of the arm! But stocked up, it would indeed be a lovely place to stop. I’ve had lots of comments on YouTube about the silos and it is indeed a flour mill! Cheers
