tupton hall school

Tupton Hall in 1800. The house is a 1650 Jacobean mansion built for Thomas & Hellen Gladwin. There have been buildings on this site back to Roaman times, and several of the elegant park ttees are well over a thousand years old. In 1929 Derbyshire Education Committee purchased Tupton Hall and its 52 acre park. The site is still occupied by Tupton Hall School. In 1938 the old hall burnt down and had to be demolished in the interest of safety. Most of the original buildings have since been demolished and replaced. This image is one of a collection by the famous local antiquarian, Thomas Bateman of Middleton by Youlgrave. (1821-1861). Bateman organised his collection by inserting them into a 4 volume copy of Lysons Magna Britannia. Derbyshire, creating a fascinating and unique illustrated record of the county. The purchase of the collection for Derbyshire Libraries was made possible by the generous bequest of Miss Francis Webb of Whaley Bridge, well known local historian, who died in December 2006.
