We care for our environment
Dronfield Civic Society is a non-political organisation which works with and supports many organisations in and around the town such as:
· The Dronfield in Bloom Committee
· The Old Dronfield Society
· Friends of Dronfield Station
· The Dronfield Horticultural Society
· The Lea Brook Valley Project
Together with these, other organisations and our local authorities and councils, we seek to develop and maintain an attractive environment across the town.
Welcome to our website
The Town of Dronfield comprises three communities of Dronfield, Dronfield Woodhouse and Coal Aston. It is situated in the eastern foothills of the Pennines only three miles from the Peak District National Park.
The finest beauty spots of Derbyshire are within easy travelling distance and yet the town is only six miles equidistant from the busy commercial centres of Sheffield to the North and Chesterfield to the South.
Dronfield covers an area of 3,457 acres and its population has increased dramatically in post war years from 6,500 in 1945 to almost 25,000 today.
The residential development has been well consolidated and the centre of the town retains its ancient character, with many fine old buildings of historic interest and the splendid early Gothic Parish Church, which celebrated its 850th anniversary in 1985.
The industry of the town has developed alongside the residential growth and Dronfield now hosts a wide variety of firms ranging from well-established engineering works to modern computer technology.
