Staveley Town Lock Fund Opens
The Chesterfield Canal Trust has opened a fund towards the costs of building a new lock in Staveley.
At the eastern end of the five restored miles of the canal in Derbyshire there is currently a major roadworks scheme installing the Staveley Northern Loop. These works should be complete by the autumn. They include three new canal bridges that will bring a further half mile of restoration. MAP
When the road is complete, the new Staveley Town Basin will be built. Funding for this work is already in place.
In order to lower the canal so that it can get under the railway bridge further east, a new lock must be built just beyond the basin. This will be Staveley Town Lock. It will be lock number 5a.
At the very successful Chesterfield Canal Festival held at Kiveton Park at the end of May, £900 was donated by the public to aid restoration of the canal. This money has started off the Staveley Town Lock Fund.
£800 donated by the Retford and Worksop Boat Club was added to the fund.
Anyone who would like to donate should write to David Fox, The Chesterfield Canal Trust, The Old Parish Rooms, Church Street, Eckington, S21 4BH.
