|John Varley - Chesterfield|
The John Varley runs trips from Tapton Lock, on the Tesco roundabout in Chesterfield. When the John Varley is in the lock, boarding is level with the towpath which, together with the boat's wheelchair lift means the boat is suitable for our less mobile guests.
Cruising the five miles of waterway from Chesterfield to Staveley, guests are able to see at first hand the high quality of the restoration that has been carried out on this stretch of the canal and experience the local flora and fauna.
