Chesterfield Borough Council have developed a downloadable tour guide for the town of Chesterfield.
Chesterfield in Derbyshire is famous for the ‘Crooked Spire’ of its Parish Church, you can discover why the spire is twisted
out of shape along with many other interesting facts such as;
- What is George Stephenson’s connection to Chesterfield?
- Who were George and Caleb Heathcote?
The hour-long Trail provides all sorts of fascinating information, highlighting 29 buildings and sites of interest in Chesterfield. Starting at the Tourist Information Centre, the route circles the town centre and includes optional detours to Holy Trinity Church and Queen’s Park.
The Trail allows for wheelchair access but, in parts, is too steep for manual wheelchair users. A powered scooter is recommended and can be hired from Chesterfield Shopmobility.
An online sample of the tour is available as well as a full download which can be placed on your MP3 player.
The tour audio is currently available in English, French and Dutch
Visit the Chesterfield Borough Council website to download the audio guide.
For those visiting the area, there is also a printed version launched at the end of March 2010 and costs £1.50, available available from the tourist information centre.
