The History of Old Gresley Hall
Gresley Hall was constructed in 1543 using stones from the priory that once stood on the grounds, dating back to the 1100s. In 1795, Sir Nigel Bowyer Gresley of Drakelow Hall and C.B Adderley of Hams Hall established an unsuccessful China factory in a portion of the hall. In the early 1800s, Mr Nadin produced common earthenware and china items at the Hall. Later in the late 1800s, it became a farmhouse that was rented to many families.
The current house has several floors, including some that have remained untouched since the 19th century. Victorian signatures and artwork can still be seen on the walls in the topmost attics.
It is a small country house that was built in various phases from the 1580s to around 1710. It was previously the seat of the Alleyne family and later became a tenanted farmhouse before being turned into a Miners Welfare Centre in the 1950s. Additionally, around 1800, it was home to an unsuccessful china factory for a short period.
