The Nottingham Canal Nature Reserve
The Nottingham Canal Nature Reserve
The Nottingham Canal was a 14.75 mile (23.6km) long canal between Langley Mill in Derbyshire and Nottingham. It opened in 1796 carrying coal from the coal fields to the City of Nottingham, the River Trent and beyond. With the advent of the railways canal traffic declined and the canal was closed in 1937. The southern section is now part of the River Trent Navigation. Since 1977, the Broxtowe Borough Council has owned and maintained the upstream sections from Wollaton to Langley Mill as a nature reserve and walking trail.
