History

After the Mines Act there was need for official Mines Rescue Stations and, thanks to CP Markham, in 1914 Chesterfield was one of the places for a rescue station. Building began in Infirmary road and the station was opened in 1917. The basement was built to simulate a mine in order to train men on rescue technics and canaries were bred.
