TOWPATH Talk took a trip on the Friends of Cromford Canal’s Birdswood last week.
The two-hour return trip from Cromford Wharf to the Leawood Pumphouse, where passengers had the chance to disembark and walk around to the wharf shed while the boat was winding took place in glorious sunshine.

Here is a selection of pictures; a report will appear in our November edition.
