The Slough Arm
The Slough Arm
The view looking east from the Trenches footbridge along the Slough Arm of the Grand Union Canal.

It was one of the last canals to be built and opened in 1882 to serve the brickmaking industry.

The last commercial traffic was carried in 1960, but plans to fill it in were opposed locally. The stretch was reopened in 1975 and has remained in use since, although there is little traffic.
