Plough Inn Hickling

At the basin of the Grantham Canal in the village of Hickling, south of Nottingham is the pleasant Plough Inn.

The Plough Inn, situated in front of a large canal basin, was once popular with the navvies who built the canal and the people who worked it.



There's a spacious beer garden, excellent ale and pub food and if my memory serves me correctly a place to play boulles (Petanque).

Visitors to the Plough Inn can stroll or cycle along the Grantham Canal and see Clark's Bridge, a Grade II listed structure constructed with handmade, red bricks.



The Grantham Canal is no longer in use but is popular with anglers, cyclists, hikers and dog-walkers. Wildlife along the canal includes swans.
