Chesterfield Canal

Two Canal Pioneers

The original idea for the canal was put forward by businessmen in and around Chesterfield. They wanted to find a more reliable and efficient way of moving their produce to other markets. Chief amongst these were heavy goods like lead, from the Peak District mines, and coal from Staveley and Killamarsh. By far the best way to carry such goods was by river, but the nearest port was Bawtry on the River Idle, over 30 miles away.
