Buy a record at the legendary Hudson's store - or other music shops we've lost like Planet X and Some Kinda Mushroom. Fortunately vinyl junkies can still get their fix today at Tallbird Records
Watch nervous divers peering down from the top board at the old Queen's Park swimming baths. It was a long way back down if you bottled it!

Shopping at Woolies. There have been some big names come and go, but this was still one of the best-loved..
Watch the Spireites out the old Saltergate ground. There's no doubt the Proact is a great stadium, but we do miss those open-air urinals...
Party on down at The Brad/Liberty's nightclub (now these flats on Chatsworth Road). Or Zanzibar. Or Xanadu...
Watch the skateboarders do their stuff under the old AGD building (ok maybe a bit more than ten years ago). The building was demolished for the current Future Walk building on West Bars
Shop at Chesterfield's Department Store - The Co-op. The building is set to be reborn shortly as a Premier Inn with restaurants on the ground floor. We still miss that bridge over Elder Way though
Enjoy a glass of Chianti or bowl of pasta at NonSoloVino, on Chatsworth Road. It's just one of many bars and restaurants that have come and gone
Watch an up and under at Chesterfield Rugby Club's old Stonegravels ground. The club has great new facilities now at Dunston Road - without those steep steps up and down to the clubhouse!
Buy firebricks, mousetraps or sweeping brooms at Johnson's Ironmongers on Chatsworth Road. It open in 1888 and closed two years ago. The building is now home to fashion store Dotique
