Minibus Tours - Chesterfield Minibus Hire
Experience a day out in style and comfort by arranging Chesterfield Minibus Hire. This type of transportation makes it easy to explore nearby Glossop, is a small town that boasts an interesting history and significant role in the area's infamous Industrial Revolution. Dating back to medieval times, the town gains mention in the Doomsday Book and is reported to have belonged to the monks of Basingwerk Abbey in North Wales before falling into the hands of the Dukes of Norfolk.
During the Industrial Revolution, Glossop was famous for being a cotton producing town. Many of the old mill buildings still stand, some of which have been converted for other uses, while others await renovation or destruction. Meanwhile, the town is also home to a number of historic churches, the most famous of which perhaps is the Old Glossop Church, which dates back to 1836 and was the first Catholic church in the area. Other churches include St Mary Crowned and the Church of the Immaculate Conception, built in 1882 and 1895 respectively. For more history, visitors can head for the Glossop Heritage Centre, which provides a variety of resources dedicated to providing information about the history of the town.
When visitors have had their fill of history, they can use their Chesterfield Minibus Hire to head on over to the nearby Derbyshire Peak District. The area is officially classed as a National Park and provides acre upon acre of lush green scenic countryside, making it perfect territory for hikers, Sunday strollers and mountain bike riders. Fans of rock climbing will also find some excellent and challenging routes in areas such as Stanage and Froggatt.
When it comes to eating out, Glossop offers everything from fast food to continental and international restaurants. Although the nightlife scene in Glossop is somewhat subdued and likely to consist of a trip to the theatre, the cinema in nearby Derby or an evening at one of the town's pleasant traditional pubs, this is a good way to finish the day before heading home in Chesterfield Minibus Hire.
