Haddon Hall

Haddon Hall is a beautifully preserved medieval fortified mansion located in Peak District. Because it has survived intact wars, fires and other misfortunes and also that it was not used for 200 years, the hall is a delight to visit. Almost all furniture is original so had there not been labels 'do not sit/touch' I would hug the tables and touch the wood panelling to feel the past generations of inhabitants - it's amazing to see the craftsmanship of old overlaid with centuries of wear.
