Quorn Hall, Warden’s House - 1972

7th April 1972 – Loughborough Echo

Quorn Hall, pleasantly situated on the banks of the River Soar, erected by Capt. Henry Farnham in 1680 on the site of the “Nether Hall”, has at various times, been a hunting box, country club, and is now in the hands of Loughborough College of Education as a Hall of Residence. It is referred to in the Quorndon Records of 1750.

The Warden’s House nearby, at one time known as the “Coachman’s House”, (shown in the sketch) has been in the occupation of the present warden, Mr H W Rose and his family, since 1965. It is charmingly situated among deep shrubberies, gardens and lawns. Extensive alterations and additions have modified its original design but, with one exception, have failed to spoil its appearance. The exception? Two Dresden house type chimneys, which were removed two years ago have not been replaced; the more is the pity! They looked so good.
