Erewash Canal Carrying Co

This section contains information about the four boats that were built for the Erewash Canal Carrying Co, an autonomous subsidiary of the Grand Union Canal Co (not GUCCC) until nationalisation.

The Erewash boats were built 1' shorter than the similar Star Class boats of the GUCCC, to enable them to pass through the then-shorter Zouch lock on the Leicester line.

We are always looking for more information to add to our archives so please contact us if you have information that does not appear in this section.
