Our publicity trailer is called the JB – James Brindley – after the original surveyor of the canal.

If you would like to book the trailer for your event, or if you are a member who would like to help staff it, please email Stephen Thompson on promotions@chesterfield-canal-trust.org.uk.

We also appear at other events with indoor displays (ID), outdoor displays (OD) and Python appears at various canal events.
