Weston Hall, Main Street, Weston upon Trent - South Derbyshire

A large and ambitious country house c1625-30, which was only partly built. Reputedly used as a barracks for soldiers when Civil War fighting broke out in Weston in 1644. Roof coverings are in poor condition and some structural repairs are needed. Upper floors are vacant with decay in floor structures. Kitchen and bar facilities were upgraded post 2011 but whilst the business is growing on lower floors, upper floors remain unused and in disrepair. Historic England grant-aided urgent repairs in 2017 and awarded a grant in 2018 for roof and associated repairs. Repairs are planned for 2019.
