That is navigable, and navigated, though not as much as it was when first
restored in the 1980s (in conjunction with the then canal society, which
subsequently went pop in slightly suspect circumstances).

The modern-day Friends of the Cromford Canal occasionally run boat trips
there, I think. There are quite a few navigable waterways which are SSSIs -
e.g. the parts of the Montgomery and the Rochdale infested by the infamous
floating water plantain. ;)
