Museum’s artwork stokes interest

A special art installation at Chesterfield Museum remembers men from the borough who served as stokers in the First World War.

The piece of visual art is a life-size recreation of the front room in a family’s terraced house and the exhibition highlights what the stokers did and explains how, through the collieries, they were recruited into the Royal Navy from Derbyshire – the county furthest from the sea.

Created by Kidology Arts, the installation is on show until July 18.

Chesterfield Museum is open each Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am to 4pm.
