Hardwick Old Hall in Derbyshire, England.

Bess ( Elizabeth Cavendish, later Elizabeth Talbot, Countess of Shrewsbury, known as Bess of Hardwick) built Hardwick Old Hall in 1587 on the grounds of her father’s medieval manor house. Bess had intended for both the old and new hall to complement each other. However, after her death in 1608, the Hardwick estate was passed to her son, William Cavendish who partially dismantled the Old Hall in the 1750s.
