The bridge at Pye Bridge
The bridge at Pye Bridge
Carrying Main Road [B600] over the Pinxton Arm of the Cromford Canal. Before the railways, this canal was the main freight route in and out of the area. In the 1830s canal boats took coal from Pye Bridge to the River Trent and pig iron to Nottingham. They brought to the wharf here cargoes as diverse as timber from Leicester, hay from Derby, flour from the River Trent and corn from Nottingham. [Volunteers at the Friends of the Cromford Canal are creating a database from the original toll receipts.]
