HERITAGE OPEN DAYS EVENT – CANAL & LOCAL AREA HERITAGE WALK – 14th SEPTEMBER 2014

This year, the Heritage Open Days take place nationwide from Thursday 11th – Sunday 14th September.

For a number of years Buckingham Canal Society has taken part in this event and this year we are organising a walk on the Sunday, meeting at 2pm by Cosgrove Lock on the Grand Union Canal. The walk will take in the Buckingham Arm up to the A5 giving walkers a chance to see the work that has been carried out by our volunteers. We then continue through Old Stratford with an opportunity to see the heritage features in this area before taking in Stony Stratford Nature Reserve. Continuing back along the Ouse Valley Way toward the Grand Union Canal, we’ll go through the Horse Tunnel underneath the canal and up to the Iron Trunk Aqueduct which carries it across the Great Ouse, and return along the towpath back to Cosgrove Lock. The whole walk is approximately five miles in duration.

All members and friends are welcome to take part in this walk which will be advertised in the Heritage Open Days brochure. Available parking can be found nearby to the Lock at Lock Lane, Cosgrove, MK19 7JR.
