Chesterfield Canal - Village Signs

It used to be that awareness of the Chesterfield Canal was limited along its route.  Even in its name-town a puzzled shrug was often the response to a query about the waterway.

That's no longer the case, thanks to the tireless efforts of the Chesterfield Canal Trust all along the route.  Spin-offs take all shapes and forms, one of which is inclusion of the canal in new village signs.

The canal is included, which is what matters, but with my London roots I can only see a red tube train coming out of a tunnel at the end of a platform! 

That ages me  -  I think it's some years since red tube trains were about.

The canal actually skirts the edge of the village, but this lovely sign makes it a major feature.
