As a regular visitor to Cromford canal, I have always felt sad that such a lovely piece of history was slowly going into ruin. It would be amazing if it was restored

Absolutely fantastic work, Ron, and a great achievement for the local community! With love from Claire, Khalid and Benjamin, cheering you on from Tanzania x

This brick is in memory of Des Whitmore my Dad who loved to walk on the Cromford Canal. Good luck with the project.

Saw the cottage as a young person, dreamed of what it had been and what it could be. Cant wait to see progress next time I visit Cromford. Greetings from the USA.

This is in memory of our mum, Ruth Jordan, who loved the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust and was a member for nearly 50 years. She would have approved of this great project and to have her name on the 'thank you' wall will mean a lot to us all, her family.
