BENTLEY HALL

Bentley Hall Bentley Hall

Cherry Orchard farm in Fenny Bentley was once known as Bentley Hall, (not to be mistaken with Bentley Hall south of Ashbourne), dates from Jacobean or Elizabethan times, was built of brick and stone quions, and is now a private farm.
It has a squat, medieval ‘half’ tower dating from the 15th century when the building was the seat of the Beresford family. The famous Beresford tomb of Thomas Beresford and his wife Agnes Hassall is in nearby St Edmund's church.
The tower is all that remains from the fifteenth-century fortified and moated manor of the Beresfords.
