Full Description

'Site of Darley Hall' is marked at SK 27766327 on the 1st ed. 25" OS map of c. 1880. (1) The site of the old mansion called Nether-hall or Whitwell-hall, was purchased about 1790 by Richard Arkwright who, in 1796, took down the old mansion, of late years called Darley-hall, which by an agreement between John de Derlegh and his mason, appears to have been erected about the year 1321, and built a new house at a short distance. (2) A manuscript of c. 1700 in the British Library shows a hall, with features not inconsistent with a 14th century date, fronted by a castlellated wall and outbuildings. A note has been added stating that it is a view of Darley Hall alias Darley Nether Hall, pulled down about 1796. No extant remains of the Hall are evident. (3, 4) Site is not to be confused with: Darley Old Hall (site of), Churchtown, Darley Dale, (SMR9816) Darley Hall, Park Lane, Two Dales, (SMR9877)
