Leicester Line (Grand Union Canal)

Est. end if know: March 31, 2018

Starts At: Lock 38 – Kings Lock
Ends At: Lock 30 – Kilby Lock

Update on 10/01/2018:

Following a healthy period of rainfall and snow melt in December and the early part of January, CRT are happy to advise that the reservoirs supplying the Leicester Line are now at a much improved level. As such, they will be re-opening the Leicester Line from Noon on Friday 12th January.


CRT would still like to carry out minor works to some of the locks along this length and envisage carrying out these works in the first half of March, and so there will be short closures at that time.


CRT would ask boaters to help us conserve water by sharing a lock where space allows, making sure all gates and paddles are shut after use and inviting oncoming boats through where they can make use of the water within the lock.
