Market Harborough & return from Rugby Base

7 Nights
TOTAL LOCKS: 52
CRUISING TIME PER DAY: 9 HOURS (44 HOURS IN TOTAL)

Popular with those seeking something different - if you don’t mind a bit of exercise. Cruise down the North Oxford Canal to Braunston, then up the Grand Union Canal towards Leicester. 

On the way to Market Harborough you will encounter no fewer than four tunnels, two sets of staircase locks and mile after mile of open countryside. There's a museum at Foxton that you might like to visit and explore the site of the Inclined Plane that was built to avoid using locks.
