New fishing platforms on the Erewash Canal

Published on: Monday, 15th April 2019

The Canals & Rivers Trust has built a further six anglers’ fishing platforms on the Erewash Canal.

Their location is towards the bottom end of the straight leading towards the stone footbridge, above the footbridge coming back from Trent Lock.  

Users are being directed to a footpath adjacent to the Lock Lane golf club, using a footbridge and turning left along a tow path.

Added to the two original platforms this now gives a run of eight positions that will enable anglers to fish the canal and keep their equipment well away from the towpath and towpath traffic.

The controlling club, Long Eaton Victoria Angling Society have described their delight that members will now be able to fish without worrying about, or disturbing tow path users.
