Route Closure - Chesterfield Canal


Please see information from Chesterfield contact officer Gemma Gregory, Regarding the closures in Staveley. 

Chesterfield Canal (GENERAL) - There are unfortunately two TPT closures on the Chesterfield Canal towpath / TPT in the coming period (Spring/Summer 2011).  Derbyshire County Council would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused, but all of the closures will bring significant investment and improvement to the Canal and the TPT in the short to medium term.  Please use the diversion routes signed on the ground and if you experience any problems with signing or notices then please ring Tapton Lock Visitor Centre on 01246 551035.  Updated 18th May 2011

Chesterfield Canal, Staveley - There is a 300m section of the TPT / Canal towpath to the north of Hall Lane in Staveley which is currently closed to all users.  This is a temporary situation due to the ongoing works to create a new canal basin for the Chesterfield Canal on this site.  The work commenced on 21st February 2011, and is planned to last for 34 weeks.  The Trail is closed and diverted during the canal basin works and an alternative route through the centre of Staveley will be advertised and signed on site.  A new, fully re-surfaced section of Trail should be created as part of the canal basin works and will be made available to all users as soon as practically possible (hopefully well before the end of the 34-week build). Updated 18th May 2011

Just to the south of Hall Lane, there is another 300m section of closure.  This is a temporary situation during works by the Chesterfield Canal Trust Work Party Volunteers to create new wash walls as part of the restoration of the canal in this location.  A new, fully re-surfaced section of Trail should be created as part of the canal restoration works and will be made available to all users as soon as practically possible. Updated 18th May 2011
