Join us for a free open day on the Grand Union Canal’s Leicester Line.

Bring the whole family to our open day at Lime Kiln Lock, Leicester

We are holding a free open day so that you can come along, meet our friendly maintenance teams and take a trip into the bottom of the drained lock. This is a rare opportunity to take a guided tour and find out all about our historic waterways and how we keep them in working order.

Everyone is welcome – bring your parents, your children and your friends.

Come and see what we are up to. You will never look at the canal in the same way ever again.

Please wear sturdy footwear, no open toes!
What we’re doing at this site

The work here involves highly skilled craftsmanship. Both top and bottom gates are leaking so new timber inserts are needed to be fitted to reduce leaks.
