About us

Summer guided walks
Monthly meetings at Brimington Community Centre
Our yearly journal – Brimington and Tapton Miscellany has been published since 2008.

We are a small group of local people interested in the history of Brimington and Tapton. These two communities are part of the Borough of Chesterfield.


The group meets monthly during the year (except July and August), on the fourth Thursday of each month, at Brimington Community Centre, High Street, Brimington, S43 1DB. Our meetings, usually with a guest speaker, normally start at 7.30 pm. In December the group meets on the second Thursday at 7.30 pm. One outdoor visit, usually a local guided walk, is held in June. There are no meetings in July or August. For our current programme see our meetings page


Each year the group publishes Brimington and Tapton Miscellany. This contains historical items on the area, plus a chronicle of local events during the year. For further details see our publications page.

Other activities

Our aim is to encourage people to bring along items that help record the history of Brimington and Tapton. If you have any old photographs, documents or a story to tell about the Group’s area and would be willing to share these with us, we’d love to hear from you. You can contact us here.


Membership of the Group costs £12 per year (there are no reductions). Benefits include reduced admission to the group’s fourth Thursday meetings. In addition the Group actively collects and copies old photographs and information from the Brimington and Tapton area. Members have free access to this growing resource. All members receive a free copy of the Brimington and Tapton Miscellany relative to the year that their subscription covers.  

To find out more about membership email us using the contacts page.

The Group is affiliated to the British Association for Local History and is a member of the Derbyshire Victoria County History Trust.
