At the Winding Wheel

Starts 7.30pm.

An illustrated journey along the beautiful and historic Chesterfield Canal. On the way we will discover its history, the 12 miles of restoration already completed and what work is still required to once again link Chesterfield with the River Trent. We will also learn about the varied activities of the Chesterfield Canal Trust and its more than 1700 members.

John Lower has been a volunteer on the Chesterfield Canal since 1981, most recently involved in the construction of a replica wooden horse-drawn narrowboat of a type unique to the Chesterfield Canal. He is a well-known writer of waterway guides and magazine articles.
