  • We viewed both of these houses and one has been restored and the other one is slowly being restored from a derelict state when it was aquired. Staff are lovely and happy to chat  more »
  • These two houses were owned by the Derby families, Quakers who developed the industrial production of iron. They give a good insight into how these wealthy entrepreneurs lived and worked.  more »

  • Great to see, very interesting guide to fill us in on the history. Lovely that we got to dress up in historic outfits and take pictures.
  • Good to hear these were rescued and not demolished. Very interesting house to look around.
