Venue profile

Chesterfield Canal

We held our first Walking Festival in 2018. We believe that it is the largest such festival based on a single canal in the country.

We have dozens of walks of varying lengths spread along the full 46 miles of the canal. Virtually all are free except our Boats & Boots walks which include a ride on one of our tripbaoats.

We hold it in the second week in September when the canal is possibly at its most beautiful.

All walks can be booked online via our website or by phone.
