Profile

Queen's Park, Chesterfield lies within a park established for Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee in 1897, and is an attractive setting for cricket, with a bandstand, a small pavillion and is surrounded by mature trees. It was at one time surrounded by a banked cycle track. The ground is overlooked by the famous twisted 238-feet high spire of All Saints Church. It is the home of Chesterfield CC.

Chesterfield hosts many of Derbyshire's county fixtures. It is a small ground, and slow to dry after rain, and thus can provide a green wicket. The size of the ground, however, lends itself to rapid scoring on good wickets. It was at Chesterfield that the Yorkshire pair, Brown (300) and Tunnicliffe set the record of 554 for the first wicket that stood for many years before being beaten by Sutcliffe and Holmes. The ground also witnessed a triple century when P.A Perrin made 343* (including 272 in boundaries) here for Essex in 1904. In 1948 a record 14,000 people watched the game against Yorkshire.
