SP8213 : Run-off sluice and weir, Aylesbury Arm, Grand Union Canal

Run-off sluice and weir, Aylesbury Arm, Grand Union Canal
Run-off sluice and weir, Aylesbury Arm, Grand Union Canal
The water coming down the arm from the main line is lost to the canal system here. Considering that the summit level of the main line has always been difficult to supply with water, it is remarkable that this arm survived, bleeding water away. Its running costs exceeded income substantially when commercial traffic ceased and before leisure use really took off.
