History

History

Allestree Hall was built in 1795 by James Wyatt. The surrounding park is believed to be of a similar date. The last of the wealthy owners the Hall housed was Sir William Evans who, in 1864, chose to donate the Hall to the local parish and villages. It was later bought by housing developers, but World War 2 prevented development from taking place. By the 1950s the Council took ownership of the Hall and park.
