    Default Sutton Scarsdale Hall, Derbyshire


    After the burnt out wreck of Firbeck, decided to drive south and to have a walk around Sutton Scarsdale Hall. Although not strictly UE, (its owned by English Heritage lol) it is empty and derelict so thought id get a few pics.

    Lovely pics, Sal.
    The first ones look as if they're an older part, which are just the kind of place I like to wander around in. Any history info about it?

    Cheers

    Cheers Foxy,

    Just found this tiny bit of info (I did take a pic of the board at the front, with more info on, but that pic has disappeared ).

    "The imposing shell of a grandiose Georgian mansion built in 1724-29, with an immensely columned exterior. Roofless since 1919, when its interiors were dismantled and some exported to America: but there is still much to discover within, including traces of sumptuous plaster-work. Set amid contemporary garden remains, including ha ha ditch and parish church."

    Will find out more and put it up.

    :) Sal

    oooooh, found more info.

    Great pictures Sal, that place looks really grand I bet it was beautiful once.

    Also is it just me or does it look like the place that guy did up on the first episode of grand designs. If he made his building liveable again then why cant some one help this place
