We have added a new article to our series of Routes and Places To Visit, this time heading on the Grand Union Canal and into Leicestershire.


One of LNBP’s skippers, Brian Tibury, has kindly produced an excellent article from regular first-hand experience on what you can expect to sample and enjoy on a trip from our mooring base at Braunston to Foxton Locks.
This wonderful journey takes many highlights including the Braunston lock system before heading through Braunston Tunnel (always a treat!), before sampling the staircase of Watford Locks. From there, there is the chance to head through Crick Tunnel ahead of a very generous lock-free stretch of cruising through the Leicestershire countryside before reaching Foxton.
