Hello Elaine

I had the pleasure of attending the Autumn Footprints event in Mapperley recently, which I greatly enjoyed. I was looking through my notes on the history of Kirk Hallam and came across the following, which I though might be of interest to you. A copy of the book is available from Ilkeston Library.

Page 43

"Trespassing on the towing-path was strictly forbidden, as was fishing, but at the end of 1824 the Company went to the expense of making a footpath with stiles between Lucitt Lane and Kirk Hallam for the convenience of Mapperley inhabitants going to their parent church."
