|John Varley - Chesterfield|
Santa Special Cruises
Our tripboat, John Varley, will be doing Santa Special trips every Saturday and Sunday from 21st November to 20th December from Tapton Lock on the A61 at the Tesco roundabout, S41 7JB.
For bookings, ring 01629 533020.
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.
