Bakewell and District Historical Society

DE45 1DD

A museum hidden away in the heart of the Peak District, this Tudor house has many stories to tell.

Built during the reign of Henry VIII, the building was originally a tax collector’s cottage. Ralph Gell of Hopton, near Wirksworth, had taken over the collection of tithes (the tenth of all produce that was due to the church) and needed a house for his steward, Christopher Plant.
