    Welcome to Erewash

    With over 30 miles of nature trails, cycle paths and bridleways to explore, there’s so much to discover in this lesser-explored part of Derbyshire.

    Discover Erewash. There's so much more...

    There’s something for everyone – have a family picnic in one of the large parks, follow nature trails along the waterways and discover the wonders of the local wildlife.

    There are plenty of opportunities for fishing along the banks of the rivers and canals and, if you fancy something more adventurous, try your hand at some wakeboarding at the Watersports Centre.

    Once you’ve worked up an appetite you'll be spoilt for choice for somewhere to eat, with lots of cosy pubs and gourmet restaurants to welcoming independent cafes.
