Inkersall and Inkersall Green (informaly referred to by local residents as Inky) are areas of settlement in Derbyshire, England. They are located south of the A619 road, 4 miles (6 km) east of Chesterfield.

Inkersall is a hamlet just outside Staveley, which has seen fast development over the last few years.

Education[edit]

Located on the main road through Inkersall is the Infant and Primary School, which also includes a Nursery. This school has been located here for many years, and the Infant School playground has recently been improved and now has a host of different play areas.

Pupils generally feed into Netherthorpe School or Springwell Community College, both of which are in Staveley.

History[edit]

The history of Inkersall was affected by nearby Rufford Abbey. The English Pope, Adrian IV, gave his blessing for the abbey in 1156 and following this the abbey's lands expanded and the villagers of Cratley, Rufford, Grimston and Inkersall were evicted.[1]
