The Derbyshire market town of Chesterfield is situated at the meeting point of the rivers Hipper and Rother and is home to around 70,000 residents.
The former mining town shows few signs of its industrial past today, aside from cycling trails and footpaths that take in the old pit areas, nowadays Chesterfield's economy is based more on light industry and tourism.
One of the most striking sights in the town is the famous 'Crooked Spire' of Saint Mary and All Saints church, which leans to one side and has a pronounced twisted structure making it absolutely one of a kind.
The town is also home to one of the country's biggest open-air markets, situated on either side of the Market Hall, not to mention the ancient Royal Oak pub that makes its home among the narrow medieval alleyways of the area known as 'The Shambles'.
