Location and Site Plan

Yelvertoft Marina is situated in the rolling countryside of Northamptonshire, on the Leicester section of the Grand Union canal. The M1 Junction 18 is only a short distance away in nearby Crick Village.

Sitting on the summit, this is an idea location for those who want lock free cruising with 23.25 miles of canal to amble along, and should you feel a desperate need for locking, Watford staircase is at one end of the summit and the famous (or infamous) Foxton staircase at the other.

Crossing over the canal bridge (no.18) from the marina, a short stroll  down the lane brings you into the centre of Yelvertoft village, which has a small post office selling newspapers and groceries.  The village has one public house; The Knightly Arms which provides a good selection of beers (so they tell me!) and can also boast of having one of the best butchers in the area.

Turn right at the end of the lane and a short walk up the hill brings you to the lovely church of All Saints.  Continuing on over the canal bridge (no. 19) will bring you full circle back to the main entrance to the marina.
