Chesterfield is a market town which sits 11 miles south of Sheffield and which is perhaps most famous for the fact that the spire of the St Mary’s and All Saints Church is visibly twisted. Since being built in 1362, the spire has gradually shifted until reaching its current striking and iconic state. A local legend for the distinctive appearance of the spire states that it happened when the devil wrapped his tail around it, but the truth is more likely to be that the original builders simply didn’t do a very good job. Either way, Chesterfield has much more to offer than just the crooked spire, and exploring in the company of a delightful Chesterfield escort is easily the most enjoyable method of getting to know the place.
As you might expect, the shopping in Chesterfield centres around the market in the town centre. You and your gorgeous Chesterfield escort could go bargain hunting through the packed stalls on a Monday, Friday or Saturday, while the antique market on a Thursday offers the chance to rummage through second hand items in search of that elusive valuable artefact. If you’re visiting on the last Sunday of the month then don’t miss the Artisan market, your chance to sample locally produced food, drink and craft items.
The Pavements and Vicars Lane shopping centres offer household names, but it you’d like to treat your girl to something a little more upmarket and unique – some designer chocolates, perhaps, or a hand crafted item of jewellery – then head for the independent shops scattered around the centre of Chesterfield. Streets like Middle Shambles, Low Pavement and Parkers Row are packed with independent traders offering items you’re only going to find in Chesterfield.
