Quorn Halls, Houses and Streets
Quorn had and still has plenty of historic
buildings. Many of these are hunt related and served as permanent
residences or hunting boxes for the aristocracy. In this section you
will find references to important houses such as Quorn House and Quorn
Hall. We also include the more humble cottages, houses and street scenes. There are also articles and photographs of demolished buildings
such as the Hall on the Green.
