The Soulbury Trail – Introduction
This trail begins at the Three Locks car park at Soulbury and takes you on a leisurely 4 mile route along the Grand Union Canal to Fenny Stratford, an old Roman settlement now located just inside the Milton Keynes boundary. Following the canal all the way there is a mix of wildlife, transport heritage, engineering prowess and early 19th-century architecture to be found here. The renovated Soulbury Pumphouse sits at the start of the trail which then follows the canal as it heads through rural Stoke Hammond towards the Ouse Valley and the more modern and urban developments of Milton Keynes. Ending at Fenny Stratford it’s possible to find a bus back to Soulbury if you are returning to a car parked there, or connect with buses into Milton Keynes or trains to Bletchley or Bedford.
The Soulbury Pumphouse trail and associated elements were funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund.
