Wendover Arm...

The Wendover Arm links the picturesque village of Wendover in Buckinghamshire with the main Grand Union Canal at the Tring Summit in Hertfordshire. Nestled in the Chiltern Hills, the canal follows the 390 foot contour around the hills and has no locks.It is possible to walk the entire Arm along the towpath, however boats are currently restricted to the first 1.5 miles from Bulbourne to a newly constructed winding hole at Little Tring.
