Mastin Moor is a small village just off the main A619, a few miles east of Staveley. The Chesterfield Canal passed through this area but can’t be seen today, although the towpath, known as the Cuckoo Way, is a public footpath.
Once known as Marsden Moor, an outlying hamlet on the Staveley estate, which was owned by the Frecheville family and, later, by the Duke of Devonshire from Chatsworth.
Wickens Park in Mastin Moor is home to a piece of art called ‘The Alphabet Tree’. This stone tree is decorated with various plants and animals that local children thought they might find in and around the park. It was created by nationally recognised artist Michael Disley from Hollmfirth.
The Borough’s latest piece of public artwork is ‘The Alphabet Tree’ - a fabulous stone tree decorated with various plants and animals that children thought they might find in and around Wickens Park at Mastin Moor.
