Lenton Chain

"The first section of canal is now used for a sewage farm outfall, which ends up going under the canal, and into the River Trent."

This is incorrect, the waterway that is now siphoned under the canal at Lenton Chain is the the mostly culverted River Leen that gave its name to Lenton (Leen-town). The river flows from Newstead Abbey lakes to Nottingham Via Linby (Leen-by).

The Nottingham Canal started at Lenton Locks, a short way up the River Leen, The River used to feed into the canal, and flowed out at the Tinkers Leen weir (still in situ) just up from Castle Lock. where the Tax Office is Now located.

The River Leen was lowered and siphoned under the canal into a new culvert to the River Trent at Queens Drive to prevent the Leen flooding throughout the city. There is a small industrial unit installed at the canal siphon to automatically clear debris that cannot pass the siphon.

There are no sewage outfalls into the River Leen.

The first section of canal is now used for a sewage farm outfall, which ends up going under the canal, and into the River Trent.
