Monument record MDR9864 - Trapdoor, Cromford Canal, Cromford
Type and Period (1)
- SLUICE GATE (Georgian to Victorian - 1794 AD to 1900 AD)
- World Heritage Site
Approximate location of a trapdoor within the bed of Cromford Canal uncovered by the Cromford Canal Society about halfway between Cromford and High Peak Junction when undertaking restoration in the 1970s. It is not known if any evidence still remains. Possibly part of the original 1792-4 canal construction. The trapdoor would have sealed a plug in the canal which would be used for draining the canal when the trapdoor was raised. (1)
