This Heron waterways map covers part of the Grand Union Canal from Stoke Bruerne to Leicester, and then onto Langley Mill along the River Soar and Erewash canal. The map provides detailed information for both waterways and leisure users, and it is complimented by information panels and photographs.

This 78 mile section of the Grand Union Canal is commonly referred to as the 'Leicester Line', and it leaves the mainline at Norton Junction. It then wends its way northwards through rural countryside to Leicester. It passes through 3 lengthy tunnels, 2 sets of staircase locks, and the village of Crick, home to the annual Crick Boat Show and the Welford and Market Harborough Arms. At Foxton are the remains of the Inclined Plane, one of the wonders of the canal world, subject of a restoration project and a museum detailing the lift, Foxton Locks, the waterways and the people who lived on them. After passing through Leicester along the 'Mile Straight' the canal continues its meandering path northwards to the River Trent along the River Soar skirting the university town of Loughborough. The 12 mile Erewash Canal continues northwards from the River Trent at Long Eaton to Langley Mill. This short and underutilised canal passes the towns, Ilkeston, Sandiacre and Eastwood on the way but maintains the feel of a quiet and rural one

This cruising and tourist map of the Grand Union Canal from Stroke Bruerne to Leicester, plus the River Soar and Erewash canal is at a scale of at 1:50,000. Also included are detailed town plans of Braunston, Weedon Bec, Stoke Bruerne, Market Harborough, Foxton, Leicester, Loughborough, Langley Mill and Eastwood at a scale of 1:12,500.
