This telephoto assisted image shows the River Soar, looking south-east (upstream) towards the village of Normanton on Soar. The spire is on the Church of St James, Grade I listed, the church dating from the 13th century.

The river forms the boundary between Nottinghamshire on the left, and Leicestershire to the right.
The River Soar is a tributary of the River Trent and is the principal river of Leicestershire. It is 59 miles (92km) long. The source of the river is midway between Hinckley and Lutterworth. The river then flows north through Leicester, where it is joined by the Grand Union Canal. Continuing on through the Leicestershire Soar Valley, it passes Loughborough and Kegworth until it reaches the River Trent south of Long Eaton. Length: 59 miles (95km).

The Loughborough Navigation (including the River Soar) was bought by the Grand Union Canal Carrying Company in 1932.
