Grand Union Canal at North Hyde Lane
Grand Union Canal at North Hyde Lane
The section of the Grand Union Canal through Hanwell Locks and Norwood from the River Thames at Brentford was opened in 1794. It was the first section of what was originally called the Grand Junction Canal. Its purpose was to provide a new, shorter and quicker transport route between London and Birmingham by connecting with a network of canals at Braunston near Daventry. When the canal reached Braunston in 1805 it cut 60 miles off the shortest alternative route.

This view is from the towpath alongside The Common looking towards the old bridge which takes North Hyde Lane over the canal. For a view on the bridge see LinkExternal link
