Description and Travel

"HOLMESFIELD township and village, in the parish of Dronfield, is very pleasantly situate, about one mile from that town, and between seven and eight miles north-west from Chesterfield: it cannot be marked as a place of trade, but the neighbourhood is highly respectable, and contains several very genteel habitations. The population of the township in 1831 was 499, being the exact number of inhabitants as returned at the preceding census."

[Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire, 1835]

Nikki MAHADEVAN has a photograph of the village sign on Geo-graph, taken in November, 2006.
