Chesterfield town centre
Take a day in Chesterfield to find out how the ‘Crooked Spire’ got its twist. Or go bargain hunting on Chesterfield Market every Monday, Friday or Saturday. Call on a Thursday for a rummage around the Flea Market, or check out local goods at the Farmers’ Market on the second Thursday of every month.
Visit the town’s Market Hall, the indoor market. This Victorian Market Hall was originally built in 1857 'for the shelter and safeguard of market people'. It has just undergone a multi-million pound refit and reopened at the end of October 2013.
How come straight cucumbers were grown here more than a century before EU regulations? What made the Market so important and how did Medieval workers manage to build so high? Find all the answers at Chesterfield Museum and Art Gallery.
