More details emerge on Knife Angel’s second visit to Derbyshire


More details have been revealed on when the emotional and towering knife angel will take its place in downtown Chesterfield.

The statue, made up of 100,000 edged weapons, will be placed in Rykneld Square in the city center, outside the Chesterfield Tourist Information Center.

The angel, who stands 27 feet tall, will arrive in October and will remain in the plaza, in the shadow of the Crooked Spire Church, for the entire month, before continuing and continuing his tour of the country.

He is currently on a nationwide anti-violence tour and has previously visited Derby, where he was outside the cathedral in October 2019.

The statue has been visited by over 90,000 people, including some from Nottingham and Leicester to view it.

The Knife Angel will be held during the month of October in Rykneld Square in the shadow of Chesterfield’s Crooked Spire Church.

News that she was heading to the city of Derbyshire was confirmed in a tweet from the British Ironwork Center, which created the sculpture.

The tweet reads: “The Knife Angel is staying at Chelmsford Central Park a few more days before moving to Chesterfield in Derbyshire.

“It is important that its anti-violence reaches the younger generation.”

After spending the month of October in Chesterfield, the angel will next travel to Blackburn, past Blackburn Cathedral in November.

Created in 2017, the sculpture has traveled across the country to highlight the effects of knife crime.

Each knife used in the making of the angel was donated to one of the 200 knife banks that the Ironwork Center has established across the country. Each knife bank was made by the Ironwork Center.
