Chesterfield Whit Walk

Here's our look back at Chesterfield's historic Procession of Witness over the years

As Christians prepare to take to the streets of Chesterfield as part of a tradition dating back more than 150 years, we re-visit the 'Whit Walks' down the decades

This year's Procession of Witness will take place in Chesterfield on Monday, May 27th. It is part of a tradition in the town that dates back 169 years and is expected to attract hundreds of participants again this year. Can you spot yourself in our gallery?
