Shardlow Hall, London Road, Shardlow and Great Wilne - South Derbyshire

Small country house built in 1684. Some remodelling was undertaken in 1726 by Francis Smith of Warwick, and again in 1768 by Joseph Pickford when Palladian flanking wings were added. Was in use as a Preparatory school in the early C20 and used as offices of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food from 1946 to 1986. The hall is now surrounded by poor quality C20 buildings. Roofs are in need of repair.
