Netherseal Hall, Derbyshire in the early 20th Century.

Netherseal (or 'Netherseale') is the southernmost village of the English county of Derbyshire, less than 2 miles from the neighbouring county of Leicestershire, and is close to the A444 and the important M42 motorway, on the banks of the River Mease[1].It is the final resting place of Sir Nigel Gresley and the birthplace of the historian, Eben William Robertson. It has a couple of 17th century almshouses, but The Tudor Hall, once the home of the Gresley family, is now long gone having been demolished in 1933.[2].
