The Village of Killamarsh is situated in North East Derbyshire. It has fantastic views from elevated positions and looks over onto Rother Valley Country Park. With a population of just under 10,000, Killamarsh has a real community spirit and a busy village centre which can meet all your shopping needs.

Killamarsh is located, essentially, the same distance to Sheffield, Chesterfield and Rotherham. It has good transport links to Chesterfield and Sheffield via the buses and the Sheffield Supertram network which has its terminus located nearby at Halfway.

The Village has three schools which are St Giles Primary, Killamarsh Infants and Killamarsh Juniors. It also has four churches which are St Giles Church, Killamarsh Methodist Church, Ebenezer Gospel Hall and New Hope Community Church. We have a Post Office, Youth Centre, Library, Medical Centre, numerous shops and many public houses including our very own, Parish Pump.
