Help to complete the canal’s restoration by its 250th Anniversary
The Chesterfield Canal was completed in 1777. The first boat from West Stockwith arrived in Chesterfield on 4th June. We are aiming to complete the last nine miles of restoration by 2027 which is the 250th Anniversary of that great event.
All the money donated will go directly towards the costs of restoration of the canal.
