Footbridge over the River Wye
Allegedly where Dorothy Vernon met John Manners to elope to get married.
Haddon Hall
Dates from the 12th to early 17th C. when it lay empty for 200 years. It was restored by the 9th Duke and duchess of Rutland. Home to the Vernon and Manners families, it is built overlooking the River Wye near Bakewell.

Dorothy Vernon, the daughter of Sir George Vernon "King of the Peak"(1503 1565),owner of Haddon Hall, married John Manners, the second son of Thomas Manners, 1st Earl of Rutland in 1563. The marriage was at first opposed by her father, who finally allowed it, but only if they moved away from Haddon. They were married happily, without great ceremony. They inhereted the estate on Sir George's death.
In the early 18th C the Manners moved to Belvoir Castle and Haddon Hall was virtually abandoned.
There is a 16th C long gallery, a banqueting hall and a chapel.

The Hall has frequently been used in film and TV productions.
