Chiltern Branch

Welcome to the IWA Chiltern Branch web pages.

IWA Chiltern Branch takes in most of South Buckinghamshire and extends across into Western Hertfordshire. Waterways in the Branch area include the Grand Union Canal between Stocker’s Lock south of Rickmansworth to Ship Bridge, Marsworth and both the Aylesbury Arm and the Wendover Arm. These are in Canal & River Trust South East Area. It also includes part of the River Thames. See Map below.  Also, take a look at photos of the waterways in the Branch gallery


The Branch is an active supporter of the Wendover Arm Trust, which is engaged in the restoration of this waterway. Also in our patch is the Rickmansworth Waterways Trust, which provides young and old from all walks of life with the chance to learn about history and heritage through education work on the Grand Union Canal.

The Branch holds evening meetings, organises various events and participates in festivals within the area.
