One Ash, Quorn

One Ash is situated within the Parish of Quorn, although it is beyond the main village boundary towards Loughborough. It was built in the 1890s for William Wright of Wright's Mill. Subsequently the Faire family lived in the house and the annual fete of the Quorn Nursing Association took place in the garden. Later Charles K Deeming, the proprietor of a cinema and theatre chain and a noted beekeeper, owned the house.

This picture featured in a magazine called the 'Building News and Engineering Journal', 8th December 1894.
