Coming into Milton Keynes recently we went past the putative terminus of the Bedford and Milton Keynes Waterway, proposed to connect the Grand Union Canal to the River Great Ouse in Bedford.
The notice on Bridge 82 indicates the approximate location of the junction.
The Bedford and Milton Keynes Waterway Trust was formed in 1995 in order to try to get the sixteen mile link - first proposed two hundred years ago - built.
The local councils seem to support the project, and, when the A421 was upgraded recently, a culvert was made to navigable dimensions.
Let's hope the plans don't fall apart as the bridge appears to be doing.
Grà on test - The September *Canal Boat* is out, and includes my boat test on *Grà* by Finesse Boats. It will be their Crick Boat Show exhibit.
