There are canal boats moored along the canal and the weather was perfect so a very pleasant few hours out and not far from Ampthill, about 35 mins drive.
This aqueduct is amazing, quite scary looking over it, and a narrow path but well worth the visit. The path from Old Wolverton goes through to Cosgrove.
Here are a selection of paths that people have written about in the area:i footpath links and more information here canal and river trust
In Old Wolverton there is a great place to have a rummage Grandads collection and there is also a pub just nearby that seemed very popular and busy in the garden. Here are a few pictures:
