Tibshelf, and the surrounding areas, have had a colourful and varied past and have been important for mining, quarrying, medicinal springs and horticulture.

In 1550 several shallow mines, one of which was owned by Bess of Hardwick, were opened in the area, starting a trend, which was to see coal mining overtake agriculture as the main industry. By the 19th century, two deep mines were in operation and a main line rail network developed to support the transport of both passengers and coal . Tibshelf’s claim to fame was also based on the fact that Britain’s first inland oil well was sunk on the outskirts of the village.

In recent years the village economy has changed radically with the closure of the local collieries and the railway. Today the village provides good educational and leisure facilities, and a pleasant rural home for 3400 people within a short distance of the Peak District National Park, Sherwood Forest and The Dukeries. Because of the close proximity of the M1 motorway, and the links to the west provided by the A38, Tibshelf is ideally situated for commuting to Derby, Nottingham, Sheffield or even further a field.

Further information about Tibshelf can be found on the Tibshelf Past and Present section of this website. Our thanks to Tibshelf Local History and Civic Society who continually maintain and update this page on our website.

Tibshelf Needs You


Tibshelf Parish Council has applied to the District of Bolsover to designate the Parish of Tibshelf as a Neighbourhood Area

A copy of the Designation of Tibshelf Neighbourhood Area dated 21st October 2016 can be viewed here


This is an exciting opportunity for you to be involved in, and have a positive influence on, future development in the village.

The Parish Council have received approval to develop a Neighbourhood Plan.

A Neighbourhood Plan cannot be used to stop development, but provides an opportunity for us all to decide the best way for the village to move forward. The parish council sees the introduction of a Neighbourhood Plan as a vital way to safeguard and shape the future of our village.

What is Neighbourhood Planning?

Neighbourhood planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area.

They are able to identify where they want new homes, shops and offices to be built, have their say on what those new buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided,

Neighbourhood planning provides a powerful set of tools for local people to ensure that they get the right types of development for their community.

Neighbourhood planning enables communities to play a much stronger role in shaping the areas in which they live and work and in supporting new development proposals.

This is because unlike the parish, village or town plans that communities may have prepared, a neighbourhood plan forms part of the development plan and sits alongside the Local Plan prepared by the local planning authority.

Decisions on planning applications will be made using both the Local Plan and the Neighbourhood Plan, and any other material considerations.



Neighbourhood planning provides the opportunity for communities to set out a positive vision for how they want their community to develop over the next 10, 15, 20 years in ways that meet identified local need and make sense for local people.


How and why should YOU get involved?


Neighbourhood Plans need to be led by the community. Whilst the parish council can lead and co-ordinate the plan making process it is vital that members of the community are actively involved.

Finding out what people think and drawing on their knowledge is an important part of developing the evidence for the plan. It is impossible to write policy for the community unless there is a strong level of understanding of that community.

Effective community involvement leads to more realistic and   deliverable plans and policies.


Do you want to be part of the team that shapes the future of Tibshelf?


Your involvement can be as much or as little as you like - it may be that you just want to register your views - or you may be   interested in becoming part of a team that researches and develops the policies - whatever you decide your involvement will be incredibly valuable and could make the difference between success and failure.

We Need Your Support


MX-2640N 20160714_113114_001


Tibshelf Parish Council are undertaking a major community consultation on proposals to extend Tibshelf Village Hall.

To meet needs we want to improve the facilities by constructing a new extension to provide a second hall and meeting space.

In recognition of the loss of a valued facility in the village, we are also looking at the feasibility of providing gym facilities , either as part of the extension or in a seperate building.

We can only acheive this with your help, comments and ideas.

A questionnaire has been distributed with the Parish Newsletter and we strongly encourage you to fill this in to support the evidence of need. We need your feedback to support applications to funders and investors. If you haven't seen our newsletter yet you can access a copy of Tibshelf News here and you can also download the Questionnaire here.

We are still eager to get your views on this proposal. If you would like a paper copy of the questionnaire please contact us at the Village Hall by calling in, telephoning us on 01773 875093 or emailing This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and we'll be happy to send you a copy.
