I always think of Chesterfield as a ‘border’ town. It lies at the point where the Midlands finishes and the ‘North’ starts.
In recent times it has become a one of the places to visit on many short break holidays. Its main attraction is without doubt the parish church of St. Mary’s and All Saints which is known worldwide for its crooked spire.
Supported by its excellent markets and shopping, its small coach park at Beckingham Way is regularly visited by coaches from all over the country. On my occasional visits, its the first place I go to see what’s on offer and this time I was treated to.....
