Canal group get together

Have your say

MEMBERS of Chesterfield Canal Trust supporters’ organisation will get together in Staveley on May 8 for a group meeting and sight-seeing walk.

People will meet at The Speedwell Inn on the A619 at 7.30pm before setting off.

A spokesman said: “We will visit Staveley Town Basin where we will hear about the proposed development of buildings, the lock, the syphon and the bridge.

“We will then walk eastwards along the yet-to-be-restored section of canal, past the proposed weir, Eckington railway bridge, Railway Lock, Lowgates Wharf and the Lost Cuckoo until we reach Staveley Puddle Bank and the site of the former aqueduct over the River Doe Lea.

“We will then return to The Speedwell Inn for refreshment.”
