British Waterways has recently announced a £50 million programme of winter maintenance to the nation’s canal network. Part of this repair work will take place on the embankment of the Chesterfield Canal at Turnerwood from January to March next year.

This maintenance programme is happening just six months ahead of the transfer of control of the canal network from British Waterways to a new charitable body, the funding of which will be delivered via a long-term government contract, commercial revenue and charitable income.
