Renishaw Hall built in 1625
Renishaw a architeculural gem or not
Set in garden and Parkland, Renishaw is barely two miles from the motorway M1 and equidistant about 155 miles- between London and the nearist point on the Scottish border. Eastwards lies Sherwood forest with its Thousand lingering memories of Robin Hood and the Ddukeries; to the west the land rises steeply towards the peak National Forest and Park, South wards are the hills and dales of Derbyshire; mixed farming and coal Mining, while only six miles away to the north is the heart of thr great sprawling city of Sheffield- for Renishaw is on the fridges of Hallamshire' that southern corner of the West Riding where Yorkshire ends, where Derbyshire begins and of which Sheffield is the natural centre and Capital.
