Originally a river port, Shardlow developed rapidly with the opening of the Trent and Mersey Canal in 1770. Here goods were transferred between the wide boats of the River Derwent and the narrow boats to the Midlands Canal Network, or were stored in the growing number of warehouses for local distribution. 'The Old Dockyard' formerly a Malt Warehouse is believed to have been built in 1799 and is one of the few warehouses remaining today, in prime location within the village of Shardlow and is officially part of the Derwent Valley Heritage Way.
