Welcome to
Chesterfield St Helen’s and District
Local History Society

Here at our society headquarters, (Christ Church, Stonegravels) we are proud to boast that we have a most comprehensive archive of Chesterfield and local material. The archive can be accessed by appointment.

St Helen’s History Society was established around 2005. It’s main purpose, is to research and record social, commercial and industrial aspects of the Stonegravels area of Chesterfield.

We are currently in the process of expanding our areas of interest to include, Old Whittington, New Whittington and Whittington Moor, Newbold and Tapton districts of Chesterfield.

Everyone welcome old friends and new.
