When we reached Berkhamsted we were lucky to find a space below lock 52 opposite the park. It has been 6 years since we have been this far south on the Grand Union canal.

Much has changed since then. Trees and bushes have grown up and are preventing the satellite signal getting through. Our terrestrial aerial was set up but only a few channels were watchable.
The main High Street runs parallel with the canal and river Bulbourne with a few bridges that cross the river. The town is very busy with many useful shops, banks and cafe's. At one end there is a wonderful hardware store with everything you may want or need. It is an 'Aladdin's Cave'.

After a few days we moved on down the locks with British Waterways help. A lack of water has been caused by one lock not being shut properly over night.
