Q & A

wide canal

how to get a widebeam boat from southern canal system to northern one? It is possible? Bedford link?

Readers say:

There is no broadbeam route from south to north, with all waterways being restricted to 7ft in the Midlands. Work has started on the broad link between Boston and Peterborough but access to the wide Grand Union will still depend on the construction of the new "Bedford Link". In the meantime you face the prospect of a dangerous costal crossing or the expense of a lorry.
