Services for schools and groups

Bamford School 1950 donated by Mr Bloxham

Schools, colleges, universities and adult education groups often need to study and learn about their local area. Local Studies libraries can provide advice and study resources for both teachers and students. Local history societies and other clubs may also want to find out more about Local Studies.  


Class and group visits are very welcome but it is important to contact us to ensure that your visit will be a success. 

Please ring the Derbyshire Record Office 01629 538347

or Chesterfield Local Studies on 01629 533400

or email us at record.office@derbyshire.gov.uk


A range of talks which can be given at venues outside the library, and resources available for historical and other events is in the process of being developed by the new joint Record Office and Local Studies facility.
