    Grove End is a small waypoint on one of England's many crisscrossing canals. During the summer, boaters like to stop here for lunch at the pub, or to take in the ambiance of the old village. In the off season, the canal offers a quiet and quaint place to take walks with that special someone, or with Man's Best Friend.
