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.
