Staveley Trails Open Again.

The Trans Pennine Trail through Staveley, whilst not complete, is open again. A new marina is in the process of being built:

 This is currently the limit of Navigation for the Chesterfield Canal west of the M1. If you wanted to
take your boat to Worksop you would have to lug it over the hill (See Werner Herzog:-)

 Although the surface is not complete people were already enjoying the ride,
 Here we are approaching the new marina.
 The trail goes underneath the new road
 Get your priorities right! Cycle Parking already in place
 This is the site of the new Marina
 I wonder if they will twig that this is the way people want to go?
 Heading E towards Arkwright Town - new road crossing. 
 People joining the trail from Polsbrook Country Park
 The end of the trail - landfill site beyond here. You can pop out on the road before this and head down to the Arkwright, a popular CAMRA pub with good food,
The trail could potentially continue across here and link to the Nutbrook Trail, taking you further south towards Mansfield and Nottingham.
Building a lock, 21st Century style.
