Mary's Gate from Derby Road and up past the Crooked Spire - there has never been any "˜hard evidence' on the ground to actually confirm that a Roman road passed through the site of the later town at all!

Hard factual evidence of this road, (Ryknield Street) - which ran from Derventio (Derby) to the Roman fort at Templeborough (Rotherham) - have been found as far north as Wingerworth and as far south as the Yorkshire border beyond Barlborough.

The Camp in the Field A surprisingly large audience of around five hundred gathered at a public meeting at the Winding Wheel in Chesterfield in 2003 to hear Professor John Walker, the Director of the Department of Archaeology at Manchester University deliver the results of his findings following the latest archaeoligical "˜dig' in the town.

But the bearded and bespectacled Professor, who described himself as "˜simply a sad fat man who digs holes in the ground' revealed far more information about "˜Roman Chesterfield' than did the actual ground that he and his team had recently excavated!

Subsequent archeology has failed to find any trace of them, so what did the Romans see, either in or near this place, that caused them to name it thus"??

There was a less intensive occupation as the Roman army moved north and Castra-feld became more or less a supply depot, a staging post for food and supplies being transported north to feed the troops from the fertile Trent Valley.These grew alongside the newly constructed roads, as evidenced by Roman Farmsteads discovered at Roystone Grange, near Minninglow, which stands alongside The Street, the Roman road which ran from Derby (Derventio) to Buxton, and others alongside Hereward Street and beside Rykneild Street at both Higham and Pentrich.All who resisted were mercilessly put to the sword and their villages destroyed.
