The search for the Nutbrook Canal 2

Here is the second and final part of this film about the long-abandoned Nutbrook Canal in Derbyshire. You can watch part 1 here.

I remember going to a meeting of the Old Union Canals Society in 1977 where there was an illustrated talk about the Nutbrook and its remains. It would be interesting to see those slides again today - I am sure there was a lot more of the canal left when they were taken.

And, of course, the Nutbrook was the subject of a classic track by Ike and Tina Turner.
