SK4478 : Chesterfield Canal, Renishaw

Chesterfield Canal, Renishaw
Chesterfield Canal, Renishaw
According to old maps, this is where the original route and the current route parted company. In front, you can just make out one of the bridges built to get what's now a bridle path across the combined width of the railway and new cut.

The original path goes off to the north-west, hugging the 55m contour line and rejoins the original path in sk4479. I assume the 'new cut' was done by the railway builders, looking at the bridges and cutting. I don't know the date, but it's certainly prior to 1907 because the 1907 OS map shows the new cut.
