Canal Licensing Information

License Authority

Canal and River Trust

The Harborough Branch, or Market Harborough Branch, runs from the Leicester Arm at Rainbow Bridge, into Union Wharf on the outskirts of Market Harborough. There are no locks on this stretch but plenty of bridges. These include a swing bridge which can be paddled under or portaged depending on your craft.

It’s a very quiet and picturesque section of canal, overgrown with wildlife. A towpath runs alongside much of the canal which is popular with walkers and cyclists.
