The main house at Calke
The main house at Calke
The main house at Calke is built of, or at least faced with, stone. It is built into a hollow and is not visible from the surrounding area or even from most of the parkland, that surrounds the house.

Calke Abbey is advertised as the Un-stately house. The Harper-Crew people who lived in the house were rather reclusive and eccentric. They were collectors and when they had filled a room they simply closed it off and moved onto the next room and that is how the house is presented by the National Trust to the visitors.
