n Chesterfield’s old Saltergate ground has been bought by developer Barratt Homes for a housing estate.

The ground, which has been empty since July 2010, when the club moved to the new B2Net Stadium, is set to be replaced with 68 homes.

Work is due to start in the next three months where a range of two, three and four-bedroom homes will be built.

Holly Sawford, of Barratt East Midlands, said: “This will be a flagship development due to its close proximity to Chesterfield town centre.”
