The Chesterfield Canal Trust’s tripboat, the John Varley, will do a full day cruise this Saturday, 26th May. It will include the first ever public trip into the new Staveley Town Basin.
Starting at the Mill pub on Station Road at Brimington, it 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. The whole trip will cover ten miles and go through ten locks.
There will be stops for refreshments at Tapton Lock Visitor Centre and Nona's Coffee Shop.
The boat has recently undergone massive restoration both inside and out which included repainting in new crimson livery.
It will depart at 10 a.m. and get back at about 4 p.m.
Tickets cost £20 or £15 for under 16s or over 60s.
