Walked so many canals

I’ve walked so many canals in England over the last number of years! So far done the Erewash Canal, Grand Union Canal (main line), Grantham Canal, Northampton Arm (Grand Union Canal), Nottingham & Beeston Canal, Paddington Arm (Grand Union Canal) and Regent’s Canal.

Think so far, the Grand Union Canal (main line) has been my favourite! Mainly because, I can say I’ve walked the whole way from London to Birmingham.

Now in the process of walking the Kennet and Avon Canal and Leicester Line (Grand Union Canal).

The map below, shows all the canals and other walks, I’ve done since 6th October 2016. When I got my Garmin Vivoactive HR GPS smart watch.

Most miles (84.79) walked in a week!

WOW! Go me, that’s me just walked 84.79 miles in a single week! Which has recorded using a GPS watch and not worked out using steps! The most miles, I think I’ve ever done a single week!

During the week, I walked the whole of Grantham Canal and back again! Also made a start walking the Leicester Line of the Grand Union Canal.
