C&HPR is one of the earliest and most unusual railways in the world. Built as part of the national waterways system it is a Railway that thought it was a canal…… or was it a canal that thought it was a Railway?!
Either way, it has a fascinating history and is one of Derbyshire’s hidden gems. The talk will include why it was built, when it was built and how it worked with plenty of stories from the local men who
worked the railroad.
