Extra Information


The Nottingham Canal Trail Description

The trail takes walkers and cyclists along the disused Nottingham Canal. It's easily accessible from Stapleford Hill and the Hemlock Stone. The walk connects Wollaton with Coventry Lane to the east, and Trowell and Langley Mill to the west, and is also suitable for cycling. An optional return along the Erewash Canal can make this into a 17 mile circular walk. While on the walk you may see lots of dragonflies, damselflies and birdlife; and as you pass through Trowell you can see the remains of Swansea Bridge, one of the original stone bridges in the area built around 1793-95.
