Chesterfield Canal Trust are dedicated to the promotion and restoration of the Chesterfield Canal.  The Chesterfield Canal actually runs for a full 46 miles and 11 miles have been fully restored since 1989 including 36 locks and 11 bridges.  Even with just 9 miles left to restore there is obviously still a lot of manpower and money required to complete the work.

Here are a number of ways you could help out......


Become a member of the Trust;
Membership fees are nominal, with a family being able to join for £16, and other membership options available for Individuals and Memberships for Life.
  -  You will receive a copy award winning magazine Cuckoo every 3 months.
  -  E-newsletters once a month.
  -  Invitations to various social meetings and events.


Spend an afternoon cruising along the waterways;
Enjoy a 45 minute cruise along the Canal each and every Sunday at 12noon, 1, 2, 3 and 4pm.  You can also charter the John Varley Narrowboat for personal or business use, for parties of up to 12.


Visit Hollingwood Hub and Nona's Cafe;
The fully restored and extended Lock House is due to open on Wednesday 1st June.  This new building comprises a Meeting Room and Nona's Cafe, which will be serving traditional homemade food and will be open from Wednesday through to Sunday.  A community gardening day will be held on Saturday 4th June and everyone is invited down for a bit digging and planting, further information can be found here


The development looks very, very impressive and I for one, cannot wait to visit and enjoy a coffee by the Canal.  Please visit our Chesterfield Canal Feature for more information.  Or follow @cctrust on Twitter.
