    Speaker, Chris Madge, a member of the Derby and Sandiacre Canal Society.

    The Derby – Sandiacre canal was engineered by Benjamin Outram and opened in stages between 1795-7. It was closed in 1946 and lay part derelict until the setting up of a Trust.

    The speaker will recount the canal’s history until its closure and the Trust’s progress towards its full restoration including their endeavour to reconnect the Erewash canal to Derby and the river Trent.
