Sutton Scarsdale Hall was sold and asset stripped in the 1920s, since then, its been preserved as a ruin, now by English Heritage.
The preservation has been done so carefully it is almost as if its been untouched, and has fallen naturally to its current state.
Because the plaster, roof, floors and some walls are missing, you can see the various stages of expansion here, look closely and tiny glimmers of the halls grandeur can be seen.
An excellent photograph opportunity for family shots, weddings, or just someplace quiet to practice your photography skills.
Entry is free, parking is plentiful, visit, enjoy and come again!
