Many thanks to the owners of Ogston Hall for generously hosting a very interesting visit yesterday afternoon.
Ogston Hall is a situated at Brackenfield, near Alfreton, and is a Grade II* listed building.
In 1768 William Turbutt altered and extended the house by adding a five-bay south east wing to a design by architect Joseph Pickford.
Further work was done for Thomas Turbutt by TC Hine in 1851, including a five-storey castellated tower.
In the mid-1800s, Gladwin Turbutt (1823–72) arranged for additional modifications.
After World War II, the building was rented to various groups for use as schools and religious worship before going into private ownership.
