Junction with the Erewash Canal

Standing on the towpath of the Erewash Canal, looking into the start of the Nutbrook Canal, with Trent Junction to the left and Langley Mill to the right.

The Nutbrook Canal is blocked by a modern road after just a few metres and, to those who haven’t spotted the former junction, it looks just like a winding point.  The first 1.2km (¾ mile) is inaccessible and, in some places, obliterated.

The end of the water

The Nutbrook Canal is in water for around 400m above Old Furnace Lock 3.  Then it’s block by a causeway adjacent to a derelict bridge.  The channel can still be seen in places beyond here but there’s no significant water in it.
