A five-minute walk from The Mundy Arms, down Gold Lane and Lower Lane will bring you to an ornate stone gatehouse, the remains of Mackworth Castle.
Actually, it is doubtful that a castle ever stood here.
There is evidence of an old Roman road (just off Bunn Lane near Wheathils Farm), a 14th century church, a 17th century thatched and timber-framed cottage, and several farmhouses dating back to the late 1800s.
Ten minutes down the road is the peaceful sanctuary of Kedleston Park where sheep graze freely on the verdant grass surrounding the magnificent Kedleston Hall.
This 18th century mansion is a wonderful example of architect Robert Adam's work and was used as a key location for the Hollywood film, 'The Duchess,' starring Keira Knightly.
Though it is largely 14th century, it is likely that it stands on the site of a former place of worship, dating back to the 12th century.
Inside is a striking monument to Edward Mundy, High Sheriff of Derbyshire in 1772 and MP for Derbyshire in 1783, fashioned from red/brown alabaster.
