DESCRIPTION

Tibshelf is a village of considerable extent, lying 4 miles north-east of Alfreton, 8 miles south-east of Chesterfield and close to the Nottinghamshire border. The area was rich in coal seams and the main employment was in the collieries. Other Inhabitants were employed in the frame-work knitting of cotton hose. It is now a rapidly expanding Industrial area.

At the Domesday Survey, the manor of Tibshelf (then Tibecel) was held by Robert, under the King. It was then held by successive families of Heriz, Belers, Swillington and Pierrepont. In 1552 it was given to St. Thomas's Hospital, London, by its founder, Edward VI.

The church of St. John the Baptist dates back to a very early age, having been rebuilt in 1729. In 1887 the nave was again rebuilt and the aisle was enlarged. Also in 1887 the churchyard was enlarged by an acre of land given by St. Thomas's Hospital, London. The registers, which date from 1627, have been deposited with the County Record Office.
