The Cuckoo Way


The Cuckoo Way Part One (The first of four walks on the Chesterfield canal called the Cuckoo Way).

Nine walkers met at Killamarsh on a very cold morning to start the walk to Chesterfield and then return along the route of the canal.

We continued on mostly on the Transpennine Trail to Chesterfield and the sun come out and it became a very pleasant day. On reaching Chesterfield we dropped down onto the canal and started back along the canal to Killamarsh.

We stopped at the Mill pub alongside the canal owned by Peter Swan ex footballer for Sheffield Wednesday and England and had a pleasant stay and it was nice to see Peter now 82years old eating his lunch and being surrounded by memorabilia from his footballing past.

Suitably refreshed we continued on down the canal to see the enormous work that was being done to restore the canal and realizing the enormous task that lay ahead to complete it as in places it did not exist.

We continued on to our start at Killamarsh and the completion of our 20 mile walk. What a good and interesting walk well led and also well researched by Aaron as he explained all that was being and was very informative so thanks’ Aaron for a walk enjoyed by all.
