HISTORY enthusiasts hope their findings about the Wendover Arm of the Grand Union Canal will help raise awareness and give The Wendover Arm Trust a much-needed boost.

Ian Petticrew and Wendy Austin from Tring have published the images and information online to encourage people to get involved with the trust, which needs people to join its sponsored walk on Sunday, September 2.

It needs to raise funds to pay for canal restoration work and is putting emphasis on the walk following the cancellation of its highest earning event, The Canal Festival.
