Hollingwood Hub

About

Hollingwood Lock House is the sole remaining lock house on this stretch of the canal. It is unique as a railway built lock house.

The Chesterfield Canal was opened in 1777. It originally ran through Staveley Works, but was rerouted when the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincoln Railway Company built a new line. This involved building a new lock with the railway line running over it. Hollingwood Lock was opened in 1892. Staveley Works Station was built on the bridge over the lock. The station was closed in 1963 and demolished a few years later.

The Lock House has been rebuilt and extended thanks to a grant from Community Assets. It is now known as Hollingwood Hub. Facilities include Nona's Coffee Shop, the David Trickett Meeting Room, a play and picnic area, shower and toilets. There are occasional concerts, talks, craft sales and exhibitions..

Hollingwood Hub is on the Chesterfield Canal towpath. This is part of the Trans Pennine Trail. It is popular for walking and cycling. There are picnic tables and new plantings of native trees, shrubs and flowers - great for wildlife.
