The marina is located at the start of the Loughborough section of the Grand Union Canal - a stones throw from Pillings Lock which is a flood lock to protect the canal when the River Soar rises.

From the A6 follow the signs to 'Quorn & Barrow upon Soar' At the roundabout take the first exit and turn left immediately after crossing the A6 bridge into Flesh Hovel Lane. The marina is down the lane on the right hand side.
