Get involved

If you are interested in supporting our work, you are very welcome to join us here at the Derbyshire Victoria County History Trust.

The launch of our ‘Chesterfield Streets and Houses’ book was accompanied by a short talk and refreshments. Everyone who was a member of the Derbyshire VCH Trust at the time received a free copy of this book. At the launch in 2019 are the authors (L-R) our County Editor Philip Riden, Chris Leteve and Richard Sheppard.

We are currently concentrating our efforts on the Chesterfield area, having undertaken research which has been published on Bolsover and adjoining parishes.

You can find out more information on our activities at our website and by contacting us.

In normal times we run a weekly term-time research group in Chesterfield, which brings together a small friendly group of interested people under our County Editor Philip Riden. We also hold summer guided walks and usually hold an AGM, with a speaker on some topic of interest to those interested in the county’s history. Members of VCH also receive a free copy of our publications (but not back copies) and a periodic newsletter.

Our blogs and Facebook posts give some indication about the sources we use and the research we have undertaken. Membership of VCH is available from £5 a month, which automatically enters you into our monthly prize-draw. We are a registered charity.
