Chesterfield train station is just under a 10-minute walk to the main shopping area and the UK’s best small indoor market. Trains first came to Chesterfield in 1840 as part of the construction of the Derby-to-Leeds line by famous Victorian engineer George Stephenson. A statue of the man himself was erected outside the train station in 2006 after the current station was almost entirely rebuilt in 1996.
Chesterfield’s famous crooked spire of the 14th-century Church of St Mary and All Saints rises out of the landscape as the train approaches Chesterfield train station. Visible for many miles around, the spire stands almost 70m high, twists through 45 degrees and leans almost 3m off centre. All sorts of wonderful folk tales abound how the spire came to be so crooked, but the truth is probably something to do with shoddy 14th-century building materials or methods.
