The Heritage Trail Project

The Heritage Trail guides, and this website, were originally developed as part of the WW1 Centenary project “Barrow Hill: A Community Remembers.”

The project was the work of local community group, the Friends of St Andrew’s (F.O.S.T.A.), and was sponsored by the Heritage Lottery: WW1 Then and Now fund, and by Chesterfield Borough Council.

The project involved finding out about the homes that local casualties lived in, the schools they attended and the places where they worked, played and worshipped. This website contains the results of much of that research.
