As the name suggests, the Grand Union Canal Loughborough Navigation forms part of the Grand Union Canal at Loughborough.
Just above North Lock at Leicester, the Grand Union Canal becomes the River Soar. The Soar flows from the River Trent at Trent Lock and flows through the city of Loughborough.
The navigation provides superb views of the Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire countryside places to paddle.
We have some downloadable Paddle Trails for this section of the Grand Union Canal. Use the links below to access them.
If you like pubs, the stretch on Normanton on Soar, has many that back onto the river. It makes for a great place to paddle and stop for some food midway.
