Footpath, former Pinxton Arm, Cromford Canal
Footpath, former Pinxton Arm, Cromford Canal
Before the railways, this canal was the main freight route in and out of the area. In the 1830s horse-drawn canal boats carried cargoes including coal, pig iron, timber, hay, flour and corn. [Volunteers at the Friends of the Cromford Canal are creating a database from the original toll receipts.] This is the approximate line of the towpath the horses walked along.
