Events at this Venue
A meander through Chesterfield’s forgotten industrial past looking at the changes and accompanied b stories from our youth. A must for anyone who wants to find out how and what shaped Chesterfield and just what has changed.
Starting at the Town Hall we walk downhill through Shenthall Gardens to the Queen’s Park. We then follow the river valley via Goyt side to Walton Dam and Somersall Park before going onto Chatsworth Road to Ashgate and climbing to Brockwell. Along the route, just what was there, is there now or why it had to go will be the talking points. We’ll return to the Town hall better informed but above all enjoying the town’s industrial past.
