Monument record MDR9859 - Canalside Gate, Cromford Canal Wharf, Cromford
Type and Period (1)
- GATE (Georgian to Victorian - 1824 AD to 1900 AD)
- World Heritage Site
A decorative stone arched gateway with steps behind to the north-west, located at the junction of the feeder arm and the second arm of the Cromford Canal at Cromford Wharf. There is evidence that there was a footbridge across the feeder arm from the gateway to the roadside. This gateway and footbridge was built to give the Arkwright family a direct route from Rock House to the canal side and reputedly to the church. The footbridge is indicated on the 1878 OS map, but will have been built after the second arm was constructed in 1824. (1)
