Hollingwood Hub

Hollingwood Hub is the home of the Chesterfield Canal Trust and the Chesterfield Canal Partnership. It has five parts.

1. The offices of the Trust and the Partnership are in the old Hollingwood Lock House.

2. Nona's Coffee Shop - see below.

3. The David Trickett Meeting Room for hire - see below.

4. The garden. We are developing the garden gradually, always involving local people and schools.

5. The car park which can hold 60 cars comfortably.

The public parts of the building are fully accessible; there are two toilets for the disabled. The towpath is built to Access for All standards.

We run boat trips every Saturday from April to October departing from the Hub. Click here for details.
