Chesterfield Canal and Trans Pennine Way
Chesterfield Canal and Trans Pennine Way
Picture SK4478 : Chesterfield Canal, Renishaw looks towards the bridge I'm stood on here. From here, you can clearly see the cut of the disused Chesterfield Canal and, to the right, the path of the old GC (MS&LR) railway between Killamarsh and Renishaw. Planning permission has recently been posted (mid 2006) to try to rewater the canal almost up to this point from Renishaw. Up ahead, the canal turns to the south-west, and when built, didn't go under the bridge, but continued on a north-east line following the contour of the hill. It was diverted when the railway was built. Ironic really that the canal may yet end up back in full working condition whereas the railway will now be nothing more than a cycle and leisure trail.
