To reach the West Drayton end- Continue along the M4 and take the slip road for London Airport, go under the motorway to the roundabout and take the exit marked West Drayton. Follow this road to the canal, which is situated approximately 150 yards from where you pass under the railway bridge. Another access point appears at the middle of the section. This can be reached by following the instructions for West Drayton but take the Stockley Road exit instead of the West Drayton one at the roundabout. The canal is situated some 25 yards beyond the lights that control a very narrow stretch of road.

This 2.75 mile stretch of the Grand Union Canal is located between West Drayton and Hayes, in Middlesex and is contolled by Calpac

This section of the Grand Union Canal is controlled by the Central Association of London and Provincial Angling Clubs [CALPAC] - see Clubs - Greater London. This coarse fishing venue offers outstanding roach fishing as well as good shoals of bream. Perch, pike, eels some carp and chub are also present. Depths range from a couple of feet up to five feet. Pole fishing is the normal route to success with casters, maggots, pinkies, breadflake and bloodworm proving successful. Boat traffic in the winter is light and never excessive in the summer months although watch your pole sections as bikers and joggers are common hazards. There is plenty of free parking with decent access to the towpath including a trolley-friendly ramp at the Blue Anchor Bridge.
