Guide to the Leicester Line and other publications


Our popular and much acclaimed Guide to the Leicester Line was once again comprehensively revised in 2017. The publication has been made possible by valuable sponsorship we received.

Paper copies are available from dispensing boxes (accessed by CRT key) at Bishops Meadow Lock (Loughborough), Thurmaston Lock, Castle Gardens moorings in Leicester, Kings Lock Leicester, Top of Foxton Flight.  Also usually available on request at Sawley and Watford locks and by post if you email your request.
