  1. Hello Martin,

    My name is Graeme. I am attempting to walk the Grand Union Canal in mid March for charity. However to be honest I am rather unfit and know little about walking – therefore to say I am hopeless at this and the organisation and what to consider is quite the understatement. I was wondering if I could pick your brains for bits of advice. I would very much appreciate it and the walk is for a good cause. Thank you.

  2. Hi Martinxo, a group of us are planning the grand union canal walk in aid of cancer research, can you recomend the best route?, Birmingham to London as we feel it would be easier? also best book or map with accomodation, the plan is over 5-6 days, hope you can help thanks, james.

    1. Hi James. The book I’ve used is the “Grand Union Canal Walk” by Anthony Burton. It’s out of print now but easy to get 2nd hand on Ebay or Amazon etc. The book follows the route from south to north, which is the direction I’m doing. I’m not sure about accommodation, AirBnB is an option…

      Let me know how you get on!
