The historic building has stood empty for 40 years!
New images show the inside of derelict Allestree Hall as a developer awaits a decision on whether it can be turned into a wedding venue.
The Grade II-listed building could be brought back to life after standing empty for 40 years.
Derby-based developer West Mill Venue Ltd has submitted a planning application to transform the property and outbuildings.
The company wants to turn Allestree Hall into a country house wedding venue with guest accommodation, restoring its heritage assets including the hall, stables and icehouse.
Images included in the planning application show the inside of the abandoned former country house.
West Mill Venue says it has a proven track record of turning listed heritage assets into wedding venues and guest accommodation.
In 2015, the firm completed the restoration of the West Mill at Darley Abbey Mills, in Derby, which is a Grade I-listed former cotton spinning mill, one of the world’s first factories.
The wedding venue project won numerous architecture awards and today welcomes more than 15,000 wedding guests a year.
