Beetwell Street

Beetwell Hall and the adjoining cottages on South Street. These were some of the oldest buildings in Chesterfield, being of early Tudor origins. Little seems to be known of the Hall but it is thought that a family called Bete or Beat may have been the owners, as they are mentioned in mediaeval documents. The Hall was built of large stone blocks but was demolished in the 1880's, soon after the cottages. It was replaced in 1887 by another building which had many uses including, in the 1960's, Yeomans camping, outdoor and army surplus store.
