Scarsdale Hall

Hall Drive, Sutton Scarsdale, Chesterfield, Derbyshire S44 5UR
Hall Drive England S44 5UR GB

This Georgian Hall, with an immensely columned exterior, was built in 1724-29. It has been roofless since 1919 when its interiors were dismantled and some exported to America. However, it is still an impressive shell worth visiting and there is still much to discover inside, like the sumptuous plasterwork.  Also set amide the garden, the ha-ha ditch and the parish church are worth visiting.

Some of the interior fixtures now reside in the Philadelphia Museum in the USA. But now Sutton Scarsdale Hall is in the care of the English Heritage and is freely accessible to visitors. It is a Listed Grade 1 building.
