Wingerworth Village - The generally popular and sought after residential village of Wingerworth is considered well situated approximately three miles to the south west of Chesterfield town centre, fifteen miles to the south of the city of Sheffield.

This relatively large village and Parish within the District of North East Derbyshire has developed alongside and mainly to the west of the main A61 Derby to Chesterfield/Sheffield Road, junctions 28 and 29a of the motorway M1 are within daily travel and commuting distance from the village.

Sustaining a population of over 6,700 with potential growth from approved housing developments, this North East Derbyshire village sustains two groups of shops including two convenience stores, two hairdressing salons, English and Chinese food takeaway shops, a greengrocery, pharmacy, sub Post Office etc. Etc.

There are two well regarded co-ed primary schools together with pre-school and nursery groups, secondary education is provided for at the nearby modern Tupton Hall Secondary School which is considered within convenient travel distance.

Wingerworth is a village with community spirit, there are two pubs both serving food, sports facilities include football, cricket, tennis, bowls, with childrens and young peoples groups/clubs.

The Parish Church is a centre of community activity sustaining local Cubs, Scouts and Guide groups.

The existing doctors surgery is currently being replaced by a brand new modern medical centre currently under constructions, the active caring Parish Council is exploring the possibility of replacing the existing Parish Rooms and library with a brand new building under consideration towards the natural centre of the village.

Location - Hockley House is well situated off the private unadopted road known as Hockley House to the southern periphery of the Deerpark residential estate, developed during the late 1960s/early 1970s and opposite to Hockley Farm.

Once believed to form part of the Deer Park to the historic Wingerworth Hall Estate sold off during the 1920s, the gardeners cottage, kitchen garden and surrounds are still believed to subsist further along Hockley Lane.

Whilst enjoying a peripheral semi-rural location at present, a regular bus service is within walking distance, the village offers shops, schools and other facilities including sports facilities of varying types, a brand new medical centre is currently under construction at Allendale Road.

Otherwise conveniently placed for travel into Chesterfield, surrounding local sources of employment, commerce, education and entertainment, junctions 29 and 29a of the motorway M1 are within convenient driving distance facilitating ease of travel and commuting further afield, the picturesque Derbyshire Peak District, Peak District National Park and many attractions are within comfortable driving distance further to the west.
