Project Description

Chesterfield Museum: Chesterfield builder’s wheel

One of the very few surviving builder’s wheels installed in the tower of the parish church in the mid-14th century, but removed in the 1950s when the ringing chamber was moved. Surviving three moves in storage, the large number of components were finally reassembled and installed in Chesterfield museum in the early 1990s with the help of a major grant from the Science Museum.
