Green Flag Award – Chesterfield Canal

In 2017 we were very proud to receive the coveted Green Flag Award for the eastern section of the Chesterfield Canal from Welham Bridge, Retford to West Stockwith. This year we’ve applied for the award to cover our entire section of this beautiful waterway, all the way to Kiveton Park.

The Green Flag Award recognises the hard work carried out by volunteers, communities and staff working together to look after their canal as a recreational green space.

Setting the national standard and providing a high level quality against which such spaces are measured, the award encourages high environmental and management standards and celebrates places that are constantly looking to improve their sites now and for future generations.
