Chesterfield Local Meeting

Chesterfield has an active body of Quakers. The meeting house was built in the 1960s following town centre redevelopment within Chesterfield. It is situated near to Chesterfield football ex-ground at Saltergate and has an impressive outlook and intimate modernist design.

Meeting is held every Sunday, as normal, with other topical meetings held during the week from time to time.  Everyone is welcome.  The Meeting Room is upstairs - easiest step free access via Brockwell Lane.
