Grand Union Canal south of Great Glen, Leicestershire
The narrowing here is due to the canal crossing the River Sence on an aqueduct.
Grand Union Canal (Leicester Section)
The Leicester section branches off the main line at Braunston and it is 66 miles long with 59 locks (including two five chamber staircase locks at Foxton) and two tunnels. Near Leicester it continues into the River Soar, hence to the River Trent south of Long Eaton.
