The River Erewash Restoration Project

The River Erewash Restoration Project was established in January 2008. The long term aim of the project is to restore the River Erewash as a wild trout stream. The Erewash has been know to hold a stock of wild trout in the past. The trout fishing rights in the 19th century were owned by the Rev. Joseph Jackson of Cloud House in Sandiacre, and were later willed to Dame Borlace Warren of Stapleford Hall. There have been reports and rumours of trout being caught from the Erewash in recent years.
