It's a beautiful place for a walk or bike ride, went along there a lot last year on my bike and saw there were people cleaning up the water, getting all the rubbish out.

The tow path from Chesterfield can be walked for miles and miles; whilst enjoying peace, calm and wildlife. The canal is teeming with fish! The path is flat so you can quickly cover the distance; we ended our journey at the Cafe situated nr Hollingwood which is really nice. I estimated that we walked about 7 miles without much issue. The path can be tight in places which on occasion does make it tricky but the main paths are all wide enough to accommodate social "walking". Interesting the canal water level was very high indeed and we all got our shoes wet at one point as the water had breached the path for about 50 feet!

My partners is wheelchair bound, and while the towpath is not tarmaced, it is accessible to wheelchairs although a little bumpy for the occupant of the chair. The one big problem is the towpath is not very wide, and some cyclists just speed along without any thought to other users, despite there being notices requesting consideration to all users. On a sunny day it would be a real pleasure to walk along, when we visited it was overcast and very windy. Certainly worth a visit.

We walked from Staveley to" The Hub" for tea & mid morning snacks. Glorious countryside & met many people in the same frame of mind! From there we walked in the direction of Chesterfield & saw herons & waterfowl in abundance. Fishermen lined the banks & all was well with the world. Good underfoot & we just had to be aware of the many cyclists who were enjoying a rain free day with blue skies & lovely sunshine. After the terrible weather experienced in previous months this was a well earned treat! Walking the tow path is suitable for all ages provided the very young are supervised. Great morning out.

Like many Canals , parts of the Chesterfield Canal have been neglected. Worth seeing the better bits in order to gain an impression of it's former utility. Worth a look !
