Grand Union Canal on Countryfile

Our section of the Grand Union Canal (including Tringford Pumping Station) featured on BBC1’s Countryfile programme on July 5th 2020. You may be able to watch the programme online here .  In the programme we heard about the Grand Union Canal’s Tring Summit, and that the summit is refilled by Tringford pumps which are being replaced.  You may get the impression that the pumps just pump from wells, and be unclear how the nearby reservoirs relate to this!
