The canal fell into decline in the 1920s and 1930s and by WW2 was only navigable from Lenton to Nottingham. Now part of the canal network for leisure traffic this stretch from Lenton to Nottingham remains in use though the rest of the canal up to Langley Mill has become unnavigable, some of the canal remains waters though unusable by boats but some of the canal bed lost to open cast mining. A short stub of the canal still exists at Langley Mill where it is used as a canal basin.
