The length of the Derby & Sandiacre Canal restoration.
(on main line Swarkestone-Sandiacre)
From Sandiacre to Swarkestone
The Derby & Sandiacre Canal Society aim to eventually reopen the through route from Sandiacre (where they’ve recently begun another lock restoration project) to Swarkestone plus a link to Derby on a new route via a boat lift and the River Derwent. And as an indication of what might one day happen, they plan to run a trip-boat on the river soon.
Together we can protect and restore the waterways; Britain's 7,000 miles of canals and navigable rivers need your help.
