Do you live in or around Chesterfield? Are you looking for things to do in the local area? Perhaps you have friends or family in the area who you’re planning to visit? As the warm weather arrives, we all want to get out and about more often. Whether you’re visiting Chesterfield, or you live locally, here are six great things to do in Chesterfield this spring.

1. Visit the Crooked Spire Church

Chesterfield Parish Church, commonly known as the Crooked Spire is a Grade I Listed Building renowned for its unusually twisted and leaning spire. Legends suggest that the spire became twisted when the Devil wrapped his tail around it during a night of mischief. The actual reason for the twisted spire is due to the lead structure being unevenly heated by the direct sun and over time becoming warped. The church is open to the public and the spire can be partially climbed.

2. Walk along the Chesterfield Canal

The Chesterfield Canal was originally used to transport coal, limestone, and lead mined in the local area. Like many of the UK’s canals, it has now been restored and is a popular destination for walkers, barge enthusiasts, and nature lovers. Have a walk along the towpath and stop to watch the narrowboats navigating the locks, tunnels, and bridges.

3. Go historical at Hardwick Hall and Gardens

Hardwick Hall was built in the 16th century for Bess of Hardwick, the Countess of Shrewsbury. It is a superb example of Elizabethan architecture built in the Renaissance style. Fully open to the public. You can marvel at the beautiful Elizabethan tapestries on show and find a quiet spot in the extensive gardens for a spring picnic.

4. Get some fresh air at Linacre Reservoir

Situated just outside Chesterfield on the edge of the Peak District, the three reservoirs at Linacre are an excellent place to get some fresh air. Stroll through the nearby bluebell woods and cross part of the upper reservoir on a boardwalk (families with children be careful, the boardwalk has no railing).

5. Go shopping (various locations)

Chesterfield is a shopper’s paradise. Visit the famous Chesterfield Market and the recently revamped Chesterfield Market Hall. Explore the many independent shops on the Shambles and the Yards or for the ultimate high street experience, go to Vicar Lane and the Pavements Shopping Centre to discover all your favourite stores.

6. Catch a show at the Pomegranate Theatre

What better way to finish off a day out than with a visit to the theatre. The Pomegranate Theatre is a beautiful Victorian Listed building full of atmosphere. It is the perfect venue to see a play, opera, or ballet performance.

Chesterfield is a great place to visit at any time of the year. This spring, make it your premier destination.

Windows & Doors

Brilliant company from all we’ve dealt with, right through to the fitters, to the follow-up emails making sure everything was ok. Having used you before and after having work done to my property, I thought you the only obvious choice to return. Was a little worried as I’d had insulated render fitted and was concerned about the removal and refitting into the same size opening, and the damage it would cause. No worries, it seems. Each to their own trade as they say, and I’m glad they managed it and left me in no doubt, another great job done. Many thanks to you all. And see you in 15 years again?

Windows And Door

After a fair few months of looking for a good window provider we can say we are one hundred percent happy with Global. They exceeded our expectations from start to finish. Michael with the quote, the lovely ladies from the office and Andy and Josh who fitted our seven windows and front door. Very professional, good quality, quick and efficient work. A pleasure to work with such a team. Our next step is the conservatory with Global. Thank you and well done to all.

Excellent Service

My mum wanted to say thank you so much for the fantastic service Global windows have given her following her burglary. From start to finish they reassured her the replacement patio doors would be robust and fitted as quickly as possible to ensure the property was secured. On the day of fitting the fitters arrived promptly and installed the doors with no mess. The gentleman who organised this from Global (sorry she couldn’t remember his name) came out to check the doors and to see mum was happy with them brought her a beautiful bunch of flowers. Mum was over the moon. Thank you so much.

We decided to re-use this Company despite moving house and County. Global were helpful and very professional at all stages of the installation. We found all their staff friendly and knowledgeable. Dates given, returning phone calls etc. were all met. The price was very competitive, the quality of their products was excellent with a good range of colours and styles. The fitters were very hardworking, managed to get the work done in one day rather than the expected 2, mainly due to the fact they worked as a team, didn’t take breaks and clearly knew their job. Great company.
