About the group

Started by Tony Bowler in 2006 our group’s aim is to collect the history of Chaddesden, and its surrounding area, together for the benefit of future generations as well as for today’s budding historians.  This information will also be available, through this Website and printed matter, to other history groups, local authority and museum archives as well as schools and any other interested parties.
