The ECP&DA have leased Sandiacre Lock Cottages from British Waterways/Canal & River Trust since the inception of the Association in 1968. They are the only surviving lock-side cottages left on the Erewash Canal and sit alongside Lock No.63 - Sandiacre Lock.
The historic cottages are maintained by volunteer members of the Association with the aim to keep them as historically accurate as possible. The cottages are open (free of charge) to the public monthly and on request for private viewings and other events - please see our Open Days for more information. ECP&DA also use them as meeting rooms for the monthly meeting and AGM.
Unfortunately our lease is now coming to its end but we have the opportunity to purchase the cottages from C&RT.
We would appreciate your support in helping us to purchase these fabulous historic cottages and keep them as part of the Association.
To make a donation you can either visit the cottages on one of the open days, pop along to a Friday work party at Langley Mill or pay online to account 91052187 sort code 40-20-12 referenced "Sandiacre Cottage".
If you are generous enough to donate £20 (cash or cheque) or more then we can claim for gift aid too so please download a copy of our gift aid form so we don't miss out on those extra funds.
If you would like to make a donation by cheque (payable to ECP&DA) please post it and your gift aid form to:
ECP&DA Sandiacre Cottage Fund

Any donation, no matter how small, will go a long way to help us raise the funds to purchase the cottages from C&RT and for that we thank you most sincerely.
