High on a wooded hillside above the Derbyshire River Wye, is the Manor House of Haddon Hall.
It is an enchanting Hall, for over 900 years, since it was built it has been in the Manners family. It has avoided all the turmoil’s that have overtaken many castles, abbeys and and houses over the country’s turbulent times in history.
Remarkably the Hall stood empty for about 200 years ( The Manners Family preferring their other home Belvoir Castle). This has done todays visitors a great favour, as the interior has remained very much as as it was….you can literally step back in time.
Well worth putting on your list of places to visit when better times return.
Please Remember ….
Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
