Home: Derbyshire searching made simple


The county straddles the Pennines from the south-western side and the Peak District, that naturally beautiful area, is the destination of thousands of tourists each Summer. The city of Derby was awarded it's charter in 1977, the year of the Queen's Silver Jubilee and is a mix of modernity and the traditional ways. The county is famous for it's Sheep farming and indeed the nickname of Derby County Football Club is 'The Rams'. In Chesterfield one can find the famous crooked spire.

Covering an area of 1,015 square miles Derbyshire relies mainly on agricultural production such as cereals, dairy farming and the afore mentioned sheep farming, although the city of Derby itself is famed for production of Rolls Royce engines and motor cars.
Derbyshire boasts some of the finest country houses in England, among them Chatsworth House, the seat of the Duke of Devonshire.
