Got great parking facilities & coffee shop at the hub where you can either get on barge for leisurely tour or can have a lovely canal walk towards the Bowl or towards Chesterfield well worth a visit.

We went with school, amazing just fab. Steering/skippering the boat entitles you to a certified certificate and an illuminated life jacket, safety on point. Perfect for all ages! Pets allowed😊😊😊🛶

Great for walks and bike rides as it’s so flat and it’s surprisingly pretty. In a few minutes walk from Tapton Lock, you could be in the middle of nowhere. There’s a very nice and reasonably priced cafe at Hollingwood which makes for a good...More

A very pleasant walk plenty of wild life and drop off places and even a boat ride if you prefer. Cafes at a couple of places and even picnic spots. A quiet spot in the midst of activity.
