SK3114 : The end of the Ashby Canal (Moira to Donisthorpe)

The end of the Ashby Canal (Moira to Donisthorpe)
The end of the Ashby Canal (Moira to Donisthorpe)
This isolated stretch of the canal runs from Conkers (Moira) to this point in Donisthorpe, constructed between 1999 and 2005. This will supposedly be extended through Measham and be reconnected to the "real" Ashby canal terminal at Snarestone, finally connecting these few miles of canal to the national network. Despite currently being largely useless for navigation, it is a cherished feature for local walkers and cyclists, acting as a backbone for the Donisthorpe Woodland Park (Dominating the left side of the canal) and the Conkers development.
