amazing stunning scenery along the canal. Lots to look at and a peaceful and relaxing walk. Can walk as little or as far as is suitable and wherever you decide to walk on the canal route there will be beautiful scenery

We walked along the canal from Worksop through to Rothervalley Country Park. Good paths and a lovely little icecream kiosk along the way. Very peaceful surroundings.

I consider myself very lucky to have the Chesterfield Canal almost on my doorstep. We enter it at Kiveton Park Station and love to walk or cycle along its banks. It's the kind of place you would visit while on holiday. The path takes you...More
