Castern Hall

Castern Hall is a privately owned 18th-century country house, the home of the Hurt family, situated in the Manifold Valley, near Ilam, Staffordshire. It is a Grade II* listed building. It is also spelled 'Casterne'.

The grange at Castern was owned by Burton Abbey until the Dissolution of the Monasteries. It was acquired by Roger Hurt, youngest son of Nicholas Hurt of Ashbourne who settled there in the mid 16th century. A later Nicholas Hurt (1649-1711) married the heiress of Alderwasley and in due course Alderwasley Hall became the family's principal residence.

The Castern house was remodelled in about 1740 by Nicholas Hurt (High Sheriff of Derbyshire in 1756). The present three storey, five bayed entrance front in Georgian style dates from this time.[1]

In the 18th and 19th centuries the house was often let out to tenants. In about 1930 the Alderwasley estate was sold and Castern again became the family's principal residence.
