Denham Country Park

The main Bridge on the river Colne has been closed due to a structural failure, this includes Bridleway 53 that runs through Denham Country Park, a pedestrian diversion taking people along the Grand Union Canal will be put in place shortly, but this is suitable for pedestrians only.

The 69 acres of Denham Country Park offer great recreation opportunities with its varied landscape including open space. The park has a visitor information point and café and links to local footpaths, bridleways and the South Bucks Long Distance Route. The park is surrounded by the Grand Union Canal and the rivers Colne and Misbourne.
