Chesterfield is the largest town in Derbyshire, set on the edge of the spectacular peak district, and offers a perfect mix of heritage, history, and modernity. With recently developed schools and one of the largest colleges in England, Chesterfield has a wide range of businesses from IT specialists to world-class engineering companies.
The historic town has roots from Roman times, with a fort close to the edge of the Roman Empire, its exceptional transport links helped it develop into a market town in the Middle Ages. The natural resources of the town make it what it is today; agriculture and minerals encouraged the growth of the leather and ironworking industries.
Chesterfield is known for its leading organisations, including Global Brands and Robinsons PLC, its famous 800-year-old open-air market, and the strange 'Crooked Spire' church.
