Join Don Catchment Rivers Trust for a waterside walk along the River Rother and Chesterfield Canal

This little known walking trail starts at the Hollingwood Hubs and follows two waterways, the beautiful river Rother and the chesterfield canal. A fantastic trail for spotting nature and learning about the industrial heritage of Chesterfield.

Please note the walk can sometimes be overgrown in places and the riverside footpath, which although is mostly flat, can be tricky underfoot. This walk is best suited to more adventurous walkers – good boots and long trousers are essential.

    Walk the story of the River Don with Don Catchment Rivers Trust founder Chris Firth, MBE. During this circular walk along the riverside, Chris will take us on a historical tour of the River Don, explaining how organisations have worked together to restore a once-broken river. Discover how industry polluted, chopped-up and changed the river, blocking the path of migratory fish, such as the incredible Atlantic Salmon. Observe the crimpsall sluice rock ramp, especially designed to re-connect our fragmented river and help bring back the incredible Atlantic Salmon to the river Don.
