Old Hall, Orchard Street
The Old Hall, on Orchard Street, this is one of the few surviving timber-framed buildings in Derbyshire. Dated from 1655, it was built by a Cromwellian officer, Captain Robert Crotchet. Box framed on a stone plinth infilled with brick nogging using stretcher bond, it consists of two storeys, attic and gables. The roof was originally thatched but is now tiled. Inside, an oak staircase survives, with turned balusters and panelling. Oliver Cromwell once stayed here, while Tutbury Castle was under siege during the Civil War
