That’s me (along with Cooper and Mark G), just walked the whole of the Grand Union Canal from London to Birmingham. Which took us 16 days, but three of them, include doing the Paddington, Northampton and Slough arms.

The total distance walked, including the arms was 189.43 miles! Now to start planning our new long distance walk!! 🙂
