PLAN of the NAVIGABLE CANAL now making from the River Trent to Langley Bridge, in the Counties of DERBY and NOTTINGHAM; Survey'd in 1776, by T. Smith
A canal plan between a bridge at the Derbyshire-Nottinghamshire border North along the River Erewash until the bridge at Langley Mill. Specifications for the canal locks can be found in the bottom right corner of the map; unlike many other maps of this form, locks and cuts do not appear to be shown on the map proper, unless of course they were unnecessary.
This map requires rubbersheeting for it to be anywhere close to the real world river features. The scale was calculated from the map's scale bar, and the coordinates were derived via georeferencing.
