The Birstall Loop 
1.2 Kilometres or 0.75 Miles in old money !

Small But Fun Loop System In Birstall Village...

Another very good introduction into the nature of The River Soar, a Looping route... It has a weir to navigate (or portage!), a Canalised winding river section going through Watermead Park & Past Fishing Lakes etc. It's has open sections of the river which eventually takes you back into the wooded area or Birstall Drop Weir - Here is where the fun begins...

People who fancy their chances can have a go on Birstall Drop Weir in a relatively safe environment with lots of photo opportunities !
