The Home Of The Legendary Crooked Spire
The town of Chesterfield located on the fringes of the Peak District has much to offer those that choose to call it home.
Famous for the Crooked Spire atop the Church of St Mary and All Saints, it is easily spotted on the approach to the town and is always something of talking point for new visitors! Legend has it that the devil has had various hands in making the spire crooked, although practicality suggests that the timbers used to construct the spire should have been dried for longer to prevent the twist that has created this eye-catching spire!
A traditional market still operates in the town from the dedicated market hall and adjacent open air section, offering a mixture of locally grown fresh produce and other goods to the residents. Established over 800 years ago, it generally takes place each Friday, Saturday and Monday and is a great place to meet local people.
THE GREAT OUTDOORS
The delights of the strikingly beautiful Peak District are just minutes’ drive away and provide lots of opportunities for walking, exploring pretty villages such as Bakewell and enjoying visitor attractions like the magnificent Chatsworth, with its stately house, gardens and estate. In addition, a section of the Chesterfield Canal has been restored and narrowboat trips along the canal can now be enjoyed.
PLEASURE DOING BUSINESS
In recent years’ the town and it surrounding area has seen considerable investment from businesses bringing jobs and wealth to the area. This is partly attributed to its fantastic location, just minutes from the main North-South arterial route of the M1 as it bypasses the town just a few miles away from Eyre View.
FOOD AND DRINK
Chesterfield has some fantastic places to eat, drink and be merry. Fischers Hall at nearby Baslow is a Michelin star fine dining restaurant, whilst the ever popular Nonna’s Italian on Chatsworth Road continues to delight. That said, there are endless eateries to cater for all tastes and budgets making ‘popping out for a bite to eat’ a pleasure.
As Chesterfield continues to prosper one thing is for certain - there has never been a better time to choose it as your home – it really is the place to be.
