Details

Come and join us at the only visitor centre on the Chesterfield Canal, a countryside oasis close to the centre of Chesterfield. We will enjoy a leisurely walk a short way along the canal path and back with a chance for refreshments at the centre afterwards. Maybe bring a picnic and stay awhile?

The visitor centre is a great place to start exploring the Chesterfield Canal. There is a small shop with a good selection of gifts, maps and books with a display about the canal and its history plus leaflets and information about places to visit in the area.
