The boatyard at Langley Mill originated in 1974 to formalise the rental from British Waterways Board. Originally formed by 8 members of the Erewash Canal Preservation and Development Association, they restored 100m of the Southern end of the Cromford canal, and constructed the dry dock. The current length of restored canal stands at nearly 270 metres, with another section looking to be restored in the near future.

Since taking over in 2016, we aim to continue the excellent work which was started by a group of volunteers 47 years ago, and strive to provide an excellent service to the wider boating community.
