Welcome To Tissington Hall

The family estate of the FitzHerbert Family for 500 years.

The Tissington Estate has been in our family for over 500 years and we are delighted to be the present custodians of a very special place. The Hall, today a prestigious Derbyshire wedding venue, was built in 1609 by our ancestor Frances and has been lived in by the family ever since. Only 300 other families in the country can witness that longevity.

Tissington Hall

Tissington Hall was built in 1609 by Francis FitzHerbert to replace the moated fortification that guarded the Norman Church of St Mary’s in the centre of the village. For over 400 years the Hall has presided over this picturesque Estate Village. Click Here to read more on Tissington Hall.

Tissington Hall Today

Sir Richard inherited the Hall and the Estate from his Uncle, the late Sir John FitzHerbert at the age of 24 in 1989. It was a challenge that he was to embrace with enthusiasm and relish as he soon realised that the Estate needed to change its direction. Click Here to read more about the Hall today.

Located at the southern edge of the Peak District National Park, the Estate extends to just under 2000 acres, centred on Tissington Hall. Click Here to read more on the estate.

Tissington Well Dressing

The origins of Well Dressing are lost in antiquity. They may even have their roots in pagan customs later given a Christian meaning. One theory says that the custom began just after the Black Death of 1348-9. To read more Click Here.
