Walk number 20 - Spinkhill Round


Part of the Chesterfield Canal Walking Festival

We will visit a short restored section of the Canal, the original route, known as the Brindley Loops, and the new sections (built in 1892!) that re-routed it to accommodate what became the Great Central Railway. We will return via Westthorpe Hills and Mount St Mary’s School to the delightful village of Spinkhill. Halfway stop for lunch available to purchase at Spinkhill, either at the Chaffinch Room or the Angel Pub – or bring your own.
