Erewash Canal, Sandiacre Bridge to Station Road, Ilkeston, Derbyshire

This section of the Erewash Canal runs from the road bridge in Sandiacre Town to Station Road Bridge,Ilkeston, a distance of around 4.2 miles. At the Sandiacre end the area is quite urban with houses and factory buildings on the opposite bank, however, this does not detract from the good fishing on offer with Roach, Bream , Chub and Perch being present all year round. Further up the Canal the offside opens up into pleasant countryside before reaching Pasture Lock, The area below the lock is known locally as ‘Sandy Bottoms’ and is highly regarded for Skimmers.
