Canal company plaqueCuckoo Way

74 km / 46 miles

Derbys, Notts, S Yorks
A walk along the 240-year-old Chesterfield Canal, known locally as the Cuckoo Dyke. It ceased to be used commercially in the 1950s. Efforts are being made to restore the canal, but in some places the path is overgrown and occasionally difficult to find on the ground. The path passes through, or close to, Staveley, Worksop and Retford.

Between Shaw Bridge (SK738920) and the finish it is coincident with the Trent Valley Way.
