Grand Union Canal – Wendover Arm


The Wendover Arm leaves the Grand Union near Bulbourne and currently terminates at Little Tring just past the Tringford Pumping Station.

Nearest Post code: HP23 4NR


Bulbourne to Little Tring turning circle

Day and guest tickets available throughout.

There is reasonable pedestrian access along the entire length and some sections can accommodate disabled anglers.

Overhead power cables affect this fishery – observe the No Fishing signs which are placed on either side of each set of cables.

Night fishing is not permitted on any of our canal waters.

Entry points are from the main canal at Bulbourne junction, Gamnel Bridge near Heygates Flour mill and Little Tring bridge (via a flight of steps).The water takes on the character of a small river and although shallow contains a really good head of quality fish. Roach often fall to seed baits and of course bread punch. Good sport is provided at most times of the day.  Roach and perch to well over 1lb and bream going to 4-5lbs are available and all tend to move up and down the arm in shoals.  Chub have also taken up residence and are thriving, as well as some large carp, although these provide quite a challenge to land in this small water! Match weights in excess of 10lbs are often recorded along the length.  TIP: Try near the mill in deepest winter for the roach where the water seems to remains coloured or by the outlet on the other side of Gamnel Bridge.
