Chesnaye is an unincorporated area and railway point in Census division 23 in Northern Manitoba, Canada.[1][3] The Deer River flows by 1,000 metres (3,280 ft) to the west of the railway point.[3]

History

Chesnaye was founded with the building of the Hudson Bay Railway in the third decade of the 20th century. When the originally intended final section line route to Port Nelson was abandoned, the construction of the new route of the final section from Amery north to Churchill, which opened in 1929, led to its founding. Chesnaye lies on the line between the settlements of Cromarty to the south and Lamprey to the north, about 60 kilometres (37 mi) south of Churchill.[3]

Transportation

Chesnaye is the site of Chesnaye railway station, served by the Via Rail Winnipeg–Churchill train.[4]
