The Leicester section of the Grand Union runs from Norton Junction, near Watford Gap, to Leicester, and takes in the Welford and Market Harborough Arms. There's plenty to interest the canal boater, with 3 tunnels, two staircase flights of locks and the inclined plane at Foxton.
At Leicester, the canal runs into the River Soar, and brings a complete contrast for the boater. A delightful meandering non-tidal river navigation, with attractive water frontages. The river gets deeper and wider as it winds its way to the confluence with the river Trent at Redhill, near Nottingham.
Running time: 58 mins approx. DVD-R format. English PAL.
