Chesterfield Borough Council is seeking a viable long-term future for Tapton House and has indicated that it is open to suggestions as to the future use of the building. You’ll find a paper prepared by the society as part of its contribution to the future of building in this post.
Tapton House is probably best known for its association with George Stephenson, where he died in 1848. But this grade II* listed, late eighteenth-century mansion on the north-eastern outskirts of Chesterfield is now empty.
