Enjoy a Cruise along the Canal from Chesterfield to Staveley
4th July 2012
... Comments

Due to popular demand, the Chesterfield Canal Trust’s tripboat, the John Varley, will do full day return cruises on Saturday 14th & Wednesday 18th July, Saturday 11th August and Saturday 8th September.


The first such trip was a great success and hugely over-subscribed.


Each cruise will depart at 10 a.m. and get back at about 4 p.m.  Starting at Tapton Lock Visitor Centre, the boat will go right up through the floodgate and into the River Rother. It will turn in the river and go the full distance down the canal to the new Staveley Town Basin where it will do a couple of laps before returning.


Altogether, it will go through ten locks and cover ten miles.


There will also be a stop for refreshments at the wonderful Nona's Coffee Shop.
Tickets cost £20 or £15 for under 16s or over 60s.  For bookings, ring 01246 551035.
