Quorn House

Loughborough Echo 3rd September 1971

An important survivor of the Georgian period of architecture, with its grace and elegance, is Quorn House in the ownership of Ald. E.G.A. Farnham, widely known for his contributions to provincial industry and public services.

The house is situated among pleasant flower beds and lawns, spacious and arranged with taste and is notably representative of the ancient hunting village in which it stands. In 1962 it was extensively altered with important additions to the original structure, and the interior, as well as the adjacent buildings, modernised.

Ald. Farnham is managing director of the Two Crescent Hosiery Co., Ltd., which specialises in the production of hosiery, particularly of children’s socks. In addition to his business activity he is a county alderman, a member of the Leicestershire and Rutland Police authority, chairman of the Leicestershire branch of the Council for the Protection of Rural England, as well as performing other public functions.

Note: The newspaper has written about Quorn House (on the South side of the village off Meeting Street), but have actually printed a picture of Quorn Hall, on the North side of the village off Meynell Road.
