Union Wharf at Market Harborough
Union Wharf at Market Harborough
Union Wharf lies at the end of the Market Harborough Arm of the Grand Union Canal. The wharf originally served as a distribution centre for goods such as worsted cloth, grain, bricks, beer and coal. The wharf has been restored and is now home to workshops, apartments, and a restaurant. There are residential moorings and canal boats can be also hired.
Grand Union Canal - Market Harborough Arm
The Market Harborough Arm of the Grand Union Canal was completed in 1809, it is lock free for its entire length of 5.4 miles. It runs from the Foxton Locks to Union Wharf in Market Harborough.
The original idea was to continue the arm from Market Harborough to Northampton, this never happened due to a lack of funds.
National Cycle Network Route 6 follows the towpath for the entire length.
