MEMBER: Chesterfield Canal Trust

The Chesterfield Canal Trust is a charitable company run entirely by volunteers.

The aims of the Trust are to promote the full restoration and appropriate development of the Chesterfield Canal, and to campaign for the construction of the Rother Valley Link, a navigable waterway to join the Chesterfield Canal to the Sheffield and South Yorkshire Navigation.

Amongst other activities we run four trip boats (one in Retford, one at Kiveton Park, one at Hollingwood and the fourth in Chesterfield); we run Work Parties on the canal on most Sundays; we have an 84-year old ex BW working boat, Python, that we use as a promotional vehicle all round the waterway system; we have a promotional trailer, the James Brindley, that attends events and town centres throughout the year and we have built the first new Cuckoo boat (unique to the canal) for nearly 80 years.

Our base is in the restored and extended Hollingwood Lock House, now called Hollingwood Hub, in Chesterfield, which incorporates a Coffee Shop. We hold concerts and events and it is available for hire. In addition the Trust has regular meetings, social events, regular festivals etc.
