Restoration on the Cromford Canal is currently at Sawmills, to complete a restored heritage structure, at Pinxton and north from Langley Mill, to open up a length connected to the navigable network by the Erewash Canal.
The hope is to eventually reopen the entire canal through to Cromford. There are difficulties including the missing Bull Bridge Aqueduct (over the main road and railway), the collapsed Butterley Tunnel and the need to work sensitively in partnership with wildlife groups.
However there is a restored length with trip-boat from Cromford to High Peak Junction, and the opening up of the southern length extending north from Langley Mill will be a major step forward in putting the Cromford back on the national waterways map.
Together we can protect and restore the waterways; Britain's 7,000 miles of canals and navigable rivers need your help.
