The only medieval domestic building to survive in Chesterfield. An important survival – but the plaque is unfortunately incorrect (so we would like to replace it) – the building was never a guildhall. Situated at the head of one of the burgage plots stretching down to the River Hipper, two bays survive from the original three.
The existence of the timber-framing was only confirmed because of a major fire in February 1974 . Though suspected by some , to most of us the Peacock was just a slightly down-at-heel Victorian pub on Low Pavement, many may still recall it being quite welcoming towards the end of the 1960s .
Grade II listed.
