Sudbury Hall, Derbyshire

We were in Derby the other week for a wedding and I couldn’t waste the opportunity while we were there to visit a couple of places in Derbyshire. Unfortunately, it was pouring down with rain and the first place we headed to, Kedleston Hall, was closed the day we were visiting. I didn’t fancy walking round the grounds in the rain so we drove to nearby Sudbury Hall instead.

Arriving at Sudbury the rain showed no signs of easing off so we had a look around inside the house first. The long gallery (pictured below) which is 51m long features stunning plasterwork and was one of my favourite rooms in the hall. Sudbury Hall is a grade I listed building in Sudbury, Derbyshire; it was built between 1660 and 1680. The National museum of childhood is housed in the 19th century servants’ wing.

Finally the rain stopped and we were able to wander round the grounds which include a 17th century fountain.
