John Taylor is sharing the history of Sutton Scarsdale Hall.
The original Hall formed part of a Saxon estate owned by Wulfric Spott, who died in 1002. It has had many owners including Richard Arkwright Junior son of Sir Richard Arkwright. After many years of neglect, in November 1919 the estate was bought by a group of local businessmen who asset-stripped the house; this went as far as removing the roof in 1920. Some parts of the building were shipped to the United States. In 1946, the estate was bought by Sir Osbert Sitwell of Renishaw Hall, with the intention of preserving the remaining shell as a ruin. Scarsdale Hall is now owned by English Heritage.
If you know any good local speakers please let us know.
