Haddon Hall, Derbyshire f.22
Haddon Hall was the seat of the Vernon family from 1170 to 1567. Built of grey limestone, the house sits gracefully on the banks of the River Wye. The present structure dates mainly from the 14th and 15th century and represents one of the finest examples of Elizabethan architecture in the country. The interior boasts exquisite craftsmanship from that time, together with fine tapestries and elaborately carved furniture and ceilings.
