Calke Abbey, Ticknall, Derbyshire, DE73 7JF [ Location Map ]
Calke Abbey is a Grade I listed country house near Ticknall, Derbyshire.
The site was an Augustinian priory from the 12th century until its dissolution by Henry VIII.
With peeling paintwork and overgrown courtyards, Calke Abbey tells the story of the dramatic decline of a country house estate. The house and stables are little restored, with many abandoned areas vividly portraying a period in the 20th century when numerous country houses did not survive to tell their story.
