This section is well signposted off the A426 Lutterworth Road heading towards Leicester. The Riverside park has a Free designated car park available to anglers and other riverside users.


A few hundred yards above the lock, there are some conker trees on the far bank and this is a well known chub area. Roach, perch and other species are also present.

Top Tips: Below the lock is a small section known as the ‘Dead Arm’ due to the backwater near Aylestone Road taking the flow out of the canal for a few hundred yards. This section can be particularly good when the canalised river Soar above is carrying flood water.
