Chesterfield Market

      
Chesterfield Derbyshire England
Description : 


chesterfeild spireChesterfield is a historic market town most famous for the Crooked Spire Church of Saint Mary and All Saints. There are various stories about why the Spire is twisted. Some blame the Devil, some talk of lightning, one 'expert' even blamed bell ringing! The most popular story about the Spire is that it was so amazed to hear of a virgin being married in the Church that it twisted round to try and see this wonder for itself. It's said that, should the same thing ever happen again, the Spire will straighten up! The truth probably has something to do with the 32 tons of lead tiles that cover the wooden Spire but you can find out more inside the Church, at the Museum or at the Visitor Information Centre.

Chesterfield market is one of the largest open air markets in England and has been trading for more than 800 years. General markets are held every Monday, Friday and Saturday and a popular flea market every Thursday.

Treat yourself to some fresh local produce at the Farmers' Market held on the Second Thursday of every month or visit the Artisan Market on the last Sunday of the month for artisan crafts and culinary delights.

The Victorian Market Hall was originally built in 1857 'for the shelter and safeguard of market people' and now houses a variety of traders offering food, clothes, haberdashery, mobile phones, gifts and cosmetics.

There is a lively programme of events throughout the year including the Medieval Fun Day in July, Well Dressing in September and 1940's Market and Christmas Lights Switch On in November.

Investigate the town's past at the Chesterfield Museum and Art Gallery which is open Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Trace the town's history from the day the Romans marched up Ryknield Street and built a fort, through the Industrial Revolution and the arrival of the railways (which brought George Stephenson to Chesterfield) right up to the present day. The Museum runs a varied events programme throughout the year.

Chesterfield boasts the country's oldest civic theatre, a concert and exhibition centre and a 10 screen cinema, as well as a new leisure centre with 2 swimming pools, squash courts and gym. Queen's Park is situated right in the heart of the Town Centre and has a children's play area, sand pit, cafe, miniature train and one of the loveliest cricket grounds in the country.
