View of Stoke Hall, a country mansion in Derbyshire. It was built around 1757 for Rev. John Simpson. He was interested in and subscribed to James Paine's Plans, Elevations and Sections of Noblemen's and Gentlemen's Houses (1767). It is likely some of the building reflected Paine's ideas. As can be seen in this print, it was a square mansion block of 5 bays on all sides. By the late 18th century the house and its estate had passed by inheritance to Henry Bridgeman, the 5th Earl of Bradford.
