Our meetings programme

Thursday 26 May 2022 – Christ Church paupers research project

Chesterfield St Helen’s Local History Society are part of a project group researching the stories of paupers who were buried in Holy Trinity and Christ Church graveyards. Working alongside local volunteers, schools and other interested organisations the group aims to develop a book, exhibition, learning materials and educational resources. Also included will be recording the natural environment outside and how these places are a green oasis.

Thursday 23 June 2022 – afternoon outdoor meeting – The Markham Vale Memorial Trail – meet 1.30pm at the Markham Vale Environment Centre.

Sandra Struggles will lead this guided walk around the ‘Walking Together memorial trail which commemorates those killed in the three Markham Colliery disasters of 1937, 1938 and 1973. We will also be able to view the small exhibition in the Markham Vale Environment Centre beforehand. Meet at the Environment Centre (S44 5HY) for a 1.30pm start.

July and August – no meeting

Thursday 22 September 2020 – Missed our blog? Or some asides on Brimington’s and Tapton’s history – Paul Freeman and Philip Cousins

You may know that we publish a regular blog. But we know that not everyone reads it! In this talk we’ll recap some of the topics we’ve covered in our blog and give our audience a chance to ask questions on the subjects. (Illustrated Power Point presentation).


Download a copy of our current programme below. Please note that this programme has been rearranged since publication. See above for details.
