Have your say

Popular BBC series Stargazing Live is set to return to TV screens - and to mark the occasion a public event is set to honour Denby’s pioneering watcher of the skies.

Chesterfield Library is due to host ‘In the footsteps of Flamsteed’ on Tuesday, January 14, from 7.30pm.

The event will see local historian Dr Mike Lancaster explore the life of John Flamsteed, the first Royal Astronomer, who was born in Denby in 1646.
