DERBY AND SANDIACRE CANAL TRUST – Draycott Canal Restoration Project –

“Do you enjoy exercising amongst nature?

We would like your opinion on our plans to restore the Derby Canal at Draycott. We are hoping to restore a ¾ mile section of canal between Derby Rd and Hopwell Rd. The path here is used quite a lot by local people so we thought it would be good to ask you what you think about it all.

The Canal will stretch from Derby Road to Hopwell Road (known locally as the Golden Mile) and be rebuilt to canal standard for later adoption into the national canal network. Water from existing streams will provide a constant, but slow flow to keep the water clean for amenity use until other sections of the canal are built. Once restored the Draycott canal will have the following features;

  • A slipway to allow canoes and small boats to access the water.
  • Mooring points at each end.
  • Angling facilities.
  • A hard-standing car park at Hopwell Road end.
  • A re-laid foot/cycle path with a grass track for horse riders.

We also plan to involve local school children, Guides, Brownies, Scouts, Cadets and any other young people who are interested in maintaining the site and helping to improve the habitats for wildlife by installing bird and bat boxes, sowing native wildflower seeds and eradicating invasive species such as Himalayan Balsam and Japanese Knotweed.Please complete a short survey by following this link.
