Grand Union Canal (Slough Arm), near Iver
Grand Union Canal (Slough Arm), near Iver
A narrowboat approaches the bridge under the M25 on its way between Cowley Peachey Junction and the basin at Slough. The Slough arm runs for about five miles, is mostly straight and, in truth, not particularly interesting with limited facilities for boaters. It was a very late addition to the canal network, not opening until 1882 - by which time many canals were feeling the effects of railway competition. Nevertheless it was successful, carrying a specific traffic, bricks, from the area's brickworks into London. Carrying continued until 1960.
