A warm welcome to our website.

Originally started in summer 2020, the website’s objectives are to keep in touch with residents and friends of Grindleford and to encourage their involvement with local projects supported by the Parish Council.

Grindleford Parish Council is most grateful to John Mottershaw, a local resident, photographer and Parish Councillor himself, for the pro bono design of this website.  John has taken most of the photographs, including some of the portraits of Councillors.

An introduction to the council from Bob Wilson, Chairman

Welcome to Grindleford Parish Council.  There has been a Council in this village since, I think, 1923, and the  role of Chairman is a job I am honoured to do.   I was born in Eyam and went to Hope Valley College, where I met my wife Diane, a second generation Grindlefordian.  I have lived here most of my adult life, both our boys went to the primary school here,  and it is very much my home.

The Grindleford News

Did you know that Grindleford Parish Council pays for the Grindleford News each quarter? 

The Grindleford News was started in – guessing – about 2003 by Frank Galbraith, who felt that a regular magazine with news about the village would be a good idea to keep everyone in touch with what was happening. 

Grindleford was both a very different and very similar place in those days …..continued


Grindleford Parish Statement

A very informative Parish Statement has been produced by the Parish Council for the Peak District National Park.

This includes a history of Grindleford and a great deal of detailed information about the village. It can be viewed on the Peak District National Park website here (opens in new window) and is well worth a read.

For some time the Parish Council have been financially supporting , the village’s own website.

Run by volunteer Matt Heason, the village website is a strong indicator of the energy and vibrance of our village and is full of information and interest.
