Footpath on the former Pinxton Arm of the Cromford Canal
Footpath on the former Pinxton Arm of the Cromford Canal
Former towpath heading north from Pye Bridge. 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 Pye Bridge 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.]
