Chesterfield: Best known for its crooked spire, it is Derbyshire’s second largest town that hosts a thriving market and is close to the M1 and Sheffield.
The town now stands over a Roman site that in turn stands on top of an Iron Age fort. The Domesday book calls the town Cestrefield, meaning open field which points towards its success as a market town. The market still remains a bustling area of the town itself, running on a Monday, Friday and Saturday. The Victorian market hall stands in the centre of the old market, containing various shopping facilities and nearby is the Shambles, with narrow streets of shops and tearooms that has its history rooted as far back as the 12th century.
Today, more than 200 stalls pack the town centre every Monday, Friday and Saturday all year round. On Thursdays there's a flea market with at least 100 stalls and, on the second Thursday of each month there’s a farmers’ market.
There are many other attractions in and around the town, as well as the pubs, clubs, restaurants, theatre, cinema and range of places to stay that you would expect from Derbyshire’s largest town.
