The Grand Union Canal Welford Arm is relatively short with just one lock. This is from Welford Junction on the Leicester Branch of the Grand Union Canal, to a small marina at Welford.

Here you can find a variety of amenities. These include a lovely little country pub and separate tea rooms. Toilets are also available at the marina and a few options for parking also.

It makes Grand Union Canal Welford Arm a good place to start or end your paddle.

It’s a pretty quiet and rural stretch linking the busier branch of the Grand Union Canal.
