Kedleston Hall

We are a group of Derbyshire-based History enthusiasts. We’re lucky to live in such a beautiful area and with Kedleston Hall within eyesight from every angle. Over the years we’ve visited the estate grounds many times, and recently begun to do more research into the amazing piece of history that’s right on our doorstep. This website will focus on Richard Curzon and Kedleston Hall. The Hon Richard Curzon is the current resident of the family wing, so we’ll be looking at him and his family through the ages – hundreds of years of ancestors and history, all of them living within the utterly beautiful Kedleston Hall itself.

Kedleston Estate


The Kedleston Estate, situated in Derbyshire, has been owned by the Curzon family for over 900 years. It lies over 4,000 acres of gently rolling land, containing mixed arable and livestock tenanted farms, woodland, traditional buildings, walled gardens and a residential portfolio.
