Chesterfield Canal Walking Festival


This is a brand new event for Chesterfield Area and its neighbours in Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire.

Chesterfield Canal is a beautiful place at any time of year, but early Autumn possibly sees it at its best.

There are 51 walks, all based in and around the Canal and ranging from 2 miles to the full 46 miles of the Cuckoo Way, the Canal towpath. Don’t worry though, we’ll take it in bite size pieces over 3 days with celebrity walk leader Reverend John Merrill. Scroll down the page to download a full programme.

There are some special interest walks including nature, canal engineering which, among other things, looks at where the water comes from, architecture and restoration. There’s also the chance to look at some of the pretty villages in North Nottinghamshire and some of Derbyshire’s stunning scenery.

Take advantage of one of our walk and cruise events with a trip on one of our narrowboats included. Why not have a go at something new on our Try Nordic Walking events, or join a guided tour of Britain’s last working Railway Roundhouse at Barrow Hill.

Most of our walks are free of charge, so there’s no excuse not to get your boots on and come along. Since you’ve done the exercise, why not celebrate with coffee and a cake, or even a pint, as a lot of the walks have a pub or café at the start or finish points.

Booking for all the walks opens on 4 June 2018, both at Chesterfield Visitor Information Centre and online. The walks have limited numbers so booking is essential and it’s best to book early to be sure of a place.

We look forward to seeing you on the Canal in September!
