Great Longstone Hall



Great Longstone Hall was built in 1747 by John Wright and is one of the more attractive of the smaller country houses in Derbyshire. This brick built building remained with the Wright family for many years, one member of which was G.T Wright who compiled the Longstone Records, the authoritive document on both Great and Little Longstone alike. It was also once home to Francis Kenning, son of the Clay Cross motor trade pioneer Sir George Kenning. It is a grade 11 listed building.
