Passenger trips along the Cromford Canal will be delayed after a coot built a nest where the narrowboat turns at High Peak Junction.

The Friends of the Cromford Canal hoped to run the first public trips later this month but Derbyshire council’s waterways development officer, Susan White, said: “The breeding season is late this year and it will probably be September before we can do a complete return run.”
