The local area guide to living in Killamarsh

Killamarsh is an ancient town, sitting in North East Derbyshire, on the border of South Yorkshire. The town was first mentioned in the Domesday Book, the ‘great survey’ of England and Wales commissioned by William the Conqueror in 1086. A self-sufficient agricultural and dairy community since the Middle Ages, the town experienced massive growth due to Industrialisation in the 18th and 19th century.

Its first coal mines were opened in the 15th century, though it wasn’t until the 19th century that it underwent a surge of growth. Shut during the coal pit closure program of the 1980s, the town and surrounding area have undergone several regeneration projects in the past few decades, adding to the already fantastic countryside.

The town itself has maintained many of its traditional buildings, with some public houses having remained near untouched for the past three hundred years. The Parish Church of St. Giles possesses headstones that date back to Saxon times, while the church tower has remained standing since its inception in the 15th century.

The town now hosts a business park, as well as a nearby aerospace alloy supply plant and animal feed mill. To its north lies the Rother Valley Country Park, a picturesque area that contains several artificial lakes and one of Britain’s only cable water-ski parks.

Information about the local residents

Many of Killamarsh’s residents were born in the town or left the area only to be drawn back to their hometown. It holds a community feel, being one of those storied areas where neighbours know each other’s names and take an interest in the general betterment of their community.

Over half of its residents are married, many of whom have children, which helps to create a family atmosphere. The town is modernising, having recovered from the loss of the mines, and while much of the surrounding area is still farmland, the area now hosts several bastions of industry.

Nearby schools

Killamarsh has several primary and junior schools within the town, as well as pre-school and day care facilities. Unfortunately, despite its size, the town doesn’t host any secondary schools.

Locals typically choose the nearby Eckington Secondary School or Wales High School in Kiveton. Both these schools are easily reachable, with tailored morning bus routes existing; they can also be easily reached via car. Sheffield University is less than half an hour away, ensuring residents seeking higher education might easily do so.

Getting around

With an effective bus system and local taxi services, getting around Killamarsh is a simple affair, as is reaching the surrounding area. One route runs directly to the Sheffield Supertram line, allowing a commuter easy access to the Sheffield region, or shopping therein. A cycle path scheme was completed several years ago, as well as pedestrian paths and bridges throughout the town and area.

Currently, a regeneration project for the Chesterfield Canal is underway, hoping to revitalise the former canal route and link the area back with the River Rother. Hiking routes are popular in the region, with one route, in particular, following the old train tracks leading from one of the town’s three former railway stations. Its nearest railway station today is in Kiveton, which provides access to much of the UK, and Sheffield International Airport is only a short drive away. On top of this, a junction off the M1 leads to the town itself, ensuring access to the UK motorway network.

Local shops

Killamarsh has several shopping centres providing all the amenities of modern life. Though it doesn’t have many of the high fashion brands that many of the larger towns and cities might, finding everything you might need isn’t too difficult.

Nearby Sheffield has everything you might need, but cannot find in Killamarsh, with a bus route to the Sheffield tram system. The tram network provides access to several large shopping centres, with brands such as Next or Burton, as well as medical centres and an indoor market. Killamarsh itself hosts a market every Thursday, with dozens of stalls showcasing local produce, art and regional brews.
