EconomicsNews from our houses

The Secretary of State for Culture Media & Sport Oliver Dowden took time out of his half term staycation in the Peak District to visit Tissington Hall. At the visit Sir Richard & Lady FitzHerbert showed the MP for Hertsmere and Derbyshire Dales MP Sarah Dines the 17th century Hall that was built by Francis FitzHerbert in 1609 and has been lived in by the same family for over 400 years. Sir Richard took the MP on the two acre roof and highlighted the essential repairs that are needed to the parapets of the building and the re-pointing needed for the 48 chimneys that adorn the roof.

Sir Richard commented ‘It was great that the Cabinet Minister could visit Tissington Hall and see the work that goes on to preserve our heritage and the repairs that are needed. On the day we saw a wedding being prepared in The Carriage House which is a smaller venue at the Hall hosting upto 50 people. The Minister was also impressed with the gardens and I know that he and his family were greeted with a warm Derbyshire welcome from all the places he visited on his break’.
