Chesterfield Museum is appealing for memories of the Crooked Spire church for a forthcoming exhibition.

The exhibition will take place at the popular Chesterfield Borough Council run attraction this summer and will explore St Mary and All Saints’ Church as a historic building, the heart of a community and the symbol of the town.

Councillor Amanda Serjeant, Chesterfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for town centres and visitor economy said: “People around the world recognise the Crooked Spire church as a symbol of Chesterfield.

“We would really like local people to come forward with their memories of the church but we also want to know what the spire means to the people of Chesterfield as a symbol of the town and how it has played a part in their lives.”

Anyone with memories should contact Rachel Fannen, museum collections officer, on 01246 345722, email rachel.fannen@chesterfield.gov.uk or call into the museum during the normal opening times.

Chesterfield Museum is open each Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am to 4pm. Admission is free.
