North East Derbyshire is one of the key seats in the whole of the UK and one which has been hard fought between the Conservatives and Labour for over a decade.
The constituency covers the area broadly north, west and south-west of Chesterfield, stretching from the tip of Sheffield in the north all the way down to the approach to Matlock in the south. In addition, parts of the outer suburbs of Chesterfield are also included, as is the fringe of the Peak District National Park in the west.
North East Derbyshire includes the towns of Dronfield, Killamarsh, Eckington and Clay Cross, along with the villages of Unstone, Holmesfield, Barlow, Cutthorpe, North Wingfield, Wingerworth, Old Tupton, New Tupton, Renishaw, Ridgeway, Marsh Lane, Old Brampton, Holymoorside, Grassmoor, Woodthorpe, Apperknowle, Middle Handley, Nether Handley, West Handley, Owler Bar, Troway, Spinkhill, Temple Normanton, Wigley, Wadshelf and Ashover. Parts of Staveley, Hasland, New Whittington, Barrow Hill and Walton also lie within the constituency.
