Picture not River Soar[edit]

The picture shows one of the canal short cut sections, rather than the river itself which runs roughly parallel a few dozen yards to the West, marked on my map (Nicholson Guide to the Waterways 3) as the Old River Soar. Its straightness is a bit of a give away that it isn't a river proper. I wonder how appropriate this picture is.--Mongreilf 16:15, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

I've changed the caption of the picture to reflect this--Mongreilf 11:08, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

Stuff about Grand Union Canal[edit]

There seems lots about the canal south of Aylestone (where the navigation leaves the soar). Mentioning this waterway in relation to the river Soar is ok, but shouldn't sections solely about the Grand Union Canal South of the Soar not be in a different article?--Mongreilf 21:15, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Richard III[edit]

Has the legend of Richard III being thrown into the river been disproved by his recent discovery? Should something be noted about this? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.3.151.131 (talk) 10:55, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
