Chesterfield twisted spire, old house and road

Although I only had an hour in Chesterfield I was quite impressed. The Railway station displayed some of the cheaper paintings from the collection at Chatsworth House (behind glass of course but no other visible security), and the twisted spire was there in all its twisted glory. I did have to cross a winding road (via a bridge) to get to town but the town, which is the last resting place of George Stephenson of Railway fame, was moderately attractive with 1930s buildings in the tudor style (see the picture of the coöp on the other blog.

The Peacock house is maedieval and might have been a guildhall - well maybe, but the church is the glory of Chesterfield
