Work is about to start on the Beggarlee Extension north of Langley Mill, which includes a staircase pair of locks and uses a former railway bridge to pass under the A610. Work continues on the donated ¼-mile canal at Hartshay, as well as with CRT on maintenance of its sections and on some privately owned lengths around Sawmills. Operation of the heritage passenger-boat Birdswood between Cromford Wharf and High Peak Junction got back into full swing in 2022 and has produced record income for the charity, helped by a volunteer-run shop at Cromford Wharf. The possibility of extending this navigable length south to Gregory Tunnel is being investigated by a geotechnical survey. Restoration of the iconic Aqueduct Cottage at Leawood is almost complete and it will be open to the public early this year.
