Grand Union Canal (Wendover Arm) in Drayton Beauchamp
Grand Union Canal (Wendover Arm) in Drayton Beauchamp
This is the downstream end of that section of the canal that currently retains water. Immediately to the north-east of here, and in SP9012, active restoration works by the Wendover Arm Trust LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) are in progress.

The bridge in the distance is Drayton Bridge, while in the foreground a mother moorhen has found a handy plank to stand on while her chicks can stand unsupported on the thin layer of weed on the water surface.
