From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dronfield is a town in the North East Derbyshire district of the county of Derbyshire in the East Midlands region of England. It comprises the three communities of Dronfield, Dronfield Woodhouse and Coal Aston. It is sited in the valley of the small River Drone, and lies between the town of Chesterfield and the city of Sheffield. The Peak District National Park lies three miles (4.8 km) to the west. The town’s name means open land infested with drones (male bees).
Dronfield was in existence before the 1086 Domesday Book, though little is known about its early history. It suffered after the Norman conquest when William the Conqueror sought to bring the North of England under control.
