About us

Dronfield is in North East Derbyshire in central England. It comprises of three communities Dronfield, Dronfield Woodhouse and Coal Aston. It is sited in the valley of the River Drone, between the town of Chesterfield to the south and the city of Sheffield to the north. 

The Peak District National Park lies 3 miles to the west.

Dronfield is known to have been in existence prior to the 1086 Domesday Book, and has a 12th-century parish church. In 1662 Charles II granted the town a market, although this later ceased. The industrial history of the town includes coal mining, the wool trade, the production of soap and steel, and engineering. 

Today a range of manufacturing firms still operate within the town. Dronfield's population has increased dramatically in post-war years from 6,500 in 1945 to its current size of just over 21,000.
