Choice of routes on the former Pinxton Arm
Choice of routes on the former Pinxton Arm
Both paths meet up again further along. The one on the right [north-east] is approximately on the line of the former towpath, the one on the left in the canal itself. Before the railways, this canal was the main freight route in and out of the area. In the 1830s cargoes included coal, pig iron, timber, hay and corn. [Volunteers at the Friends of the Cromford Canal are creating a database from the original toll receipts.]
