  London's main line route from the north opened in stages. Brentford to Uxbridge was opened in 1794. The Paddington Canal (also known as the Paddington Arm, or branch) opened in 1801 from Hayes, Middlesex, to Paddington. The whole route was opened in 1805. As usual it was a long tunnel which delayed the opening of the whole route. Small map of the Grand Junction Canal
