This map gives detailed coverage of the Trent and Mersey Canal and River Trent from Great Haywood Junction to Torksey Junction, with the Fossdyke Navigation, with emphasis on the waterways and information useful and relevant to users of the waterways without neglecting other leisure users. The map detail is complimented by information panels and photographs.
This map starts in Weston, Staffordshire just above Great Haywood Junction where the Staffs & Worcs. Canal meets the Trent & Mersey. It then heads south eastwards towards Fradley Junction, where it meets the Coventry Canal.
The canal heads north eastwards, passing through Burton upon Trent, a town with a rich brewing tradition. From Burton to the Upper Trent at Shardlow the canal is suitable for wide beam craft.
The river continues on to Long Eaton and Trent Lock, a waterways intersection. Turn south for the River Soar or north for the Erewash Canal. The Trent continues onwards until the navigable route leaves the Trent at Beeston Lock and heads along the Beeston and Nottingham Canals into the heart of Nottingham, before rejoining the Trent at Trent Bridge. The river leaves the city and continues to wind its way north eastwards towards Newark-On-Trent.
Shortly after Newark-On-Trent is Cromwell Lock where the river becomes tidal. A further 15 miles and it reaches Torksey Junction. From here the Trent continues on to Gainsborough and eventually meets the River Humber at Trent Falls. The map heads south eastwards through Torksey Lock and on to the Fossdyke Navigation. Once through the lock it's 11 miles of lock free cruising along a waterway originally built by the Romans, into the heart of historic Lincoln.
