Grand Union Canal: Campbell Park Winding Hole
Grand Union Canal: Campbell Park Winding Hole
A winding hole is a deliberately widened reach of the canal that enables long narrowboats to turn through 180 degrees. Usually these are found next to old wharves where working boats might have had a reason to need to turn, but there never was a wharf here and this is one is modern.

Bridge Number 82 is visible to the right. This used to carry the country lane between Little Woolstone and Great Linford over the canal. Nowadays the lane is a footpath and cycleway, most of the original route of which can still be followed.
