    Wow, that place must have been stunning in its time.

    It never fails to amaze me how we can just let these places go to pot.

    Yes, it's sad that it got that way, but I think now it has a kind of tragic beauty, nothing to compare with how it was, but still very special.

    Very nice, was going to ask if there were any cellars but you've answered the question already now! Must stop there next time I'm off down the M1.

    Bolsover? Lol. I used to deliver tea in Bolsover a long, long time
    ago, nice castle, everyone calls you "duck" round there.

    So Sutton Scarsdale? Am I right in thinking its got a later big
    (not derelict) mansion house right next to it?

    FAO Bishop,

    You're thinking of Hardwick Hall, thats on the opposite side of the motorway. They're owned by 2 separate trust thingies, (sorry don't know what you call em!), One hall is owned by the National Trust, and the other one is owned by English Heritage. (can't remember which one owns which hall - again, sorry!). As you're coming up the motorway, (northbound) take the slip road off at junction 29, Heath Roundabout, take the first exit off and a few hundred yards theres a turn off Hardwick Hall is signposted from there. (if your coming southbound, off at 29, 4th exit off (the one after the m1 south) and follow directions as above.

    Theres Stainsby mill down there, and also the Hardwick Inn, lovely meals, and a roaring fire in the winter. lovely.

    When you're coming north, there's Hardwick Hall first you see on the right, then Sutton Scarsdale Hall, on the left, then its Bolsover Castle on the right at the top of the hill.

    Hope this helps,

    :) Sal

    Actually no there are houses built around the drive & there is a church right next door to the hall. But no big mansion unless you mean Bolsover Castle accross the valley (about 4 miles).

    Ok I've got it now thanks Rob and SmileySal. :)

    Place I'm thinking is Hardwick Hall a Tudor house with the ruins
    of the old Hardwick Hall almost right next to it. Great place, be
    brilliant to do Sutton and the Hardwick houses in the same day.
    I think it was the pics of the plasterwork at Sutton Scarsdale
    that confused me, am I right in thinking theres a similar set up
    at the old Hardwick Hall?
