“Kedleston” is a lost medieval village, which was cleared to make way for the landscaping of Kedleston Hall in the eighteenth century. We are primarily interested in the lives and characters of fifteenth century Derby. We see their names around the city but many have lost their original connection, indeed we don’t think Derby makes enough of its medieval history…time for a change!

Babington, Sacheverell, Curzon, Vernon – who were these people and how did they live?
