Since it is a circular route, it is possible to join it at any point, but if coming from Derby the best way is to take the train to Beeston and from the station make your way to Beeston Lock, where the canal and river meet. You then have the option of riding clockwise or anti-clockwise around the route.
So.......... all aboard ............
And here we are!
Follow Meadow Road and Longlands Road to Beeston Lock.
The short path on the right leads to the weir.
