Newton Top Lock near Newton Harcourt, Leicestershire
Newton Top Lock near Newton Harcourt, Leicestershire
Lock No 23 on the Grand Union Canal (Leicester Section).
The locks here and down towards the River Trent are wide locks which can accommodate two narrowboats up to 72 feet (almost 22 metres) in length, though modern full length boats are limited to seventy feet because of limitations in the locks on other canals.
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.
