  • Tibshelf is a small village of around 3,500 inhabitants, and is situated in north east Derbyshire, in the north midlands of England. Like most settlements in this area, it was once a mining village, but the pits have long since closed and Tibshelf is now a dormitory settlement for the surrounding towns and cities.

    It is roughly equidistant from Chesterfield, 8 miles to the north, and Mansfield, 7 miles to the east, with the cities of Sheffield, Nottingham and Derby all within 20 miles. Tibshelf lies between the tourist areas of the Peak District to the west, and the Dukeries to the east. The famous Elizabethan House of Hardwick Hall is just about a mile away to the north, with other notable historic houses such as Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, and Bolsover Castle close by. Tibshelf has the unique distinction of having the first land based oil well being located within the parish boundaries, a fact displayed on all the village signs at the village entrances.

    Administratively, Tibshelf is served by the District of Bolsover and Derbyshire County Council, as well as its own Parish Council.

    Tibshelf has one County Councillor. County Councillors are elected for four years. The next elections are in May 2005.
