The Chesterfield Canal Trust is a charitable company run entirely by volunteers, incorporated in July 1997. In 1998 it took over the assets of the former Chesterfield Canal Society (founded 1976).

The aims of the Trust are to promote the full restoration and appropriate development of the Chesterfield Canal, and to campaign for the construction of the Rother Valley Link, a navigable waterway to join the Chesterfield Canal to the Sheffield and South Yorkshire Navigation.

  • Lots of History great country side
  • Wonderful walks to be had along the Cuckoo Way. There is something therapeutic about walking by the water and always wanting to know what's around the next bend. My favourite section is Kiveton Park to Shireoaks.
  • Takes you to some beautiful places
  • One of the best canals on the system. It's blissfully under used. Passing opposing canal boats can be hard if you're in the wrong bit. This is a really rewarding, quite technical canal.
  • Great for walks along the well kept footpaths
