A low, stone-built medieval hall set in the Derbyshire countryside.
Norbury Manor, former seat of the Fitzherbert family, is just a short drive from Sudbury Hall and Kedleston Hall near Derby. The hall is a very rare example of a medieval hall built on the first floor, once forming part of the private apartments of the Fitzherbert family.
The later 17th century red brick farmhouse which was built in front of the hall is available as a holiday cottage. The only surviving part of the original early medieval hall offers a rare king post, Tudor door and 17th-century Flemish glass. Visitors can also find a beautifully maintained small garden space which includes a knot garden, as well as a short walk into the woodland, and path which leads down to the river. Please note that parking is limited and suitable for cars only.
