An author has launched a revised edition of her walkers’ guide to the Wendover Arm of the Grand Union canal.

Shelley Savage held a signing for the up-to-date version of her book, called Water from Wendover – the Story of the Wendover Arm Canal, at Tring’s local history museum.

She said: “My name is on the cover as the author but it does involve everybody who has had a hand in the canal and made it what it is today. It is a walkers’ guide, but also looks into local history.”

Additions to the book include pictures and descriptions of the restoration work of the canal, as well as results of scientific research.

Copies of Shelley’s book are available from the Tring local history museum, and information centres in Tring, Wendover and Aylesbury for £4.95.
