taken 4 years ago, near to Willen, Milton Keynes, Great Britain

Grand Union Canal: Reach between Downhead Park and Willen Park
Grand Union Canal: Reach between Downhead Park and Willen Park
For the most part the canal is shielded from the houses in the new residential suburbs of Milton Keynes (and vice versa).

The old Victorian large scale map of this reach shows that there used to be a milestone on the towpath here, near to where the boat is moored, inscribed "To the Thames 60".

SP8640 : Grand Union Canal: Bridge Number 80A is visible in the distance.
