Notes:

Derwent Hall was built in 1672 by the Belguy family, and at some point passed to the Duke of Norfolk. In 1931 it became a youth hostel, but in 1945 the Derwent dam was completed and the valley was flooded; Derwent Hall is now under water, although in 1976 and 1989 it may have reappeared briefly when the water level fell. Some of the original woodwork is now in Thornbridge Hall.

In Derbyshire, Yorkshire, and Lancashire where the stone is much harder, the work is of a plainer and more severe type, such as may be seen at Derwent Hall (Fig. 117), and the colour is more sombre.” (p. 169)
