17 forgotten pictures taken at events in the Peak District's Haddon Hall over the years

Haddon Hall is one of the oldest houses in England and dating back more than 900 years it has the rare honour of being one of the only homes in the country to have remained in one family’s ownership for its entire existence.

Haddon Hall, the private residence of Lord and Lady Edward Manners, is set in the Peak District in the valley of the River Wye and is unique as it remained empty for nearly two hundred years.

This extraordinary period, when time stood still in the Hall, allowed it to remain unaltered during the modernising period of the Georgians and Victorians. So venturing into Haddon is like stepping back in time.

Over the years there have been all sorts of events, from open days to even filming historic films at Haddon so take a look back at these pictures dating back to 1996.
