Quorn Hall, 1905

The original Quorn Hall, known as the Nether Hall, was built on the north-east side of Quorn in the first half of the fifteenth century by Thomas Farnham. Thomas thereby formed a second Branch of the Farnham family in the village. Due to a combination of death duties and extravagance, finances became depleted and after Henry Farnham died 1684, Quorn Hall had to be sold to pay his debts.

In 1753 Hugo Meynell moved his hunt to Quorn Hall, creating the famous Quorn Hunt.

This photograph was taken in 1905, when Quorn Hall was owned by Edward Warner and the year before Quorn Hall ceased to be the home of the hunt.
