The History of Gresley Old Hall
With centuries of history, it is no wonder people flock to investigate Gresley Old Hall.
In the mid 18th century the house had an estate of 600 acres and was set in a fenced park, but in 1789 the house was said to be ‘hastening fast to decay’ and the property was subsequently dismembered for coal mining.
The house tenanted as a farm and the outbuildings converted for use as a pottery in 1794.
In 1895, when the mining had destroyed too much of the estate for farming to be viable, it was converted into tenements. It then lay derelict for some time before being purchased by a Miners’ Welfare club, which employed Vernon Brice ARIBA to make it habitable in 1953.
The house now stands in a remnant of the former park, once again derelict!
