Chesterfield map

Chesterfield is a market town and unparished area in the Borough of Chesterfield, located 39 kilometres north of Derby and 18 kilometres south of Sheffield at the confluence of the rivers Rother and Hipper. It can be traced back to a 1st century CE temporary Roman fort. The later Anglo-Saxon village’s name is derived from the Old English ceaster (Roman fort) and feld (pasture). Three days a week, there is a sizable street market. The town is built on a historic coalfield, however there is little visible sign of mining. The Church of St Mary and All Saints’ crooked spire is the prominent landmark.
