Shirley Hall Farm (Building)

The historic home of the Shirleys. Now a working farm offering bed and breakfast accommodation (www.shirleyhallfarm.com). The current building dates from the 16c but probably succeeds an earlier building.

The 1900 Brailsford and District Ploughing And Hedge-Cutting Society's competition was held here.

The farm was available from Lady day 1904 for a rent of £230 and again in 1922 for £2 an acre.
