About

Part of the Chesterfield Canal Walking Festival

Killamarsh is the centre of the most complex part of the Canal restoration project. On this walk we will explore some of the difficulties, including the Norwood Tunnel, and look at possible alternative routes and solutions. We will use the towpath by unrestored sections of the Canal, with occasional glimpses of water, and walk by lakes in Rother Valley Country Park.

Meet at Killamarsh Leisure Centre, Stanley Street. S21 1EL
