Chesterfield Canal History Days

Map The Chesterfield Canal Trust will be showing some of the treasures from its archive at Hollingwood Hub on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th of April. The event is free and will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

An original copy of the 1771 Act of Parliament, which enabled the canal to be built, will be on display, plus maps already on the walls, plus other items, especially maps, from the archive. There will be a selection of old photos and original paintings of the canal. Staveley History Society will bring a display of old photos.

The Trust is inviting the public to bring canal related items, photos or objects, to show the archivists. These will be scanned and/or photographed; possibly even donated to the archive.

The main focus will be the local area, though anything to do with any part of the canal would be welcome.

The fervent hope is to see the holy grail of photos – a boat in Hollingwood Lock and a steam train in the station on the abutments above.

The Chesterfield Canal history book will be on sale, as will be copies of the 1772 map of the canal by John Lodge.

The tripboat, Madeline, will be running cruises on both days and Nona’s Coffee Shop will be open.

Hollingwood Hub is just off the A619, SatNav S43 2JP. The 90 bus runs right past. There is plenty of onsite parking.
