Chesterfield Canal History Book
Our revised and updated History book covers everything that you need to know about the canal. It starts with the first suggestions in 1768, through the choice of routes, Act of Parliament, construction and the early years. It goes on to the Railway ownership and the decline. The desperate struggle to stop closure in the 1960s and the steady progress since, including the history of the Society and Trust are all here. It comes right up to date with Staveley Town Lock and HS2. There is also a brief towpath guide and notes on Flora and Fauna. It is printed in full colour with photographs old and new, 28 pages.
It costs £1, plus £1.50 P&P.
