How FUNKY was the Chesterfield canal?
You don't have to go very far these days to read about controversies surrounding self driving cars these days.
(We have had self driving planes for years - and curiously no one gets - or has ever - got worked up about that).
But back in the 1700's - James Brindley & John Varley - went to parliament - got the money and started building.
Started building a structure that required a completely new style of boat to run on it.
So what can we learn from the Chesterfield canal?
