Lying 10km west of Hemel Hempstead, Berhamsted is a small pleasant and characterful town of 16,000 people. The canal runs parallel with the main street and is set in a very picturesque green area with plenty of trees and lawns to relax in.

The canal  covered by this page stretches west 3km running from Lock 55 to Lock 51 with 5 bridges. There are moorings along the route which are in short walking distance of the main eating and retail areas including a large Waitrose supermarket. The train station is also nearby.

A surprise object  en route is a totem pole. The site was a timber yard  importing wood from Canada. As a gesture of friendship, the Canadian wood yard donated a locally crafted totem pole as a gesture of friendship.
