Pinxton Wharf
Not just another pub geograph! Pinxton Wharf is the northern terminus of the Cromford Canal LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) , which opened up local coalfields and Pinxton porcelain to a wide market via the Erewash Canal. From here, an early railway (the Mansfield and Pinxton) was opened in 1819 to connect Mansfield with the canal system. Tickets to travel on the horse drawn line could be bought at the Boat Inn.
