Market Harborough Towpath L1

Market Harborough towpath moorings are well positioned to enjoy the benefits of a bustling market town, as well as being close to some of Leicestershire's most picturesque countryside.

The mooring site is close to the terminus of the Grand Union Canal Market Harborough Arm. From here it is a pleasant five and a half mile cruise eastwards on a lock-free stretch of canal to reach historic Foxton Locks, one of the jewels in the inland waterways network.
