Description

In the Darby houses, Dale House and Rosehill House, you can delve in to the everyday life of Quaker families.

At the Darby Houses you'll gain an insight into the gracious lifestyle of the Darby family. Rosehill House, was one of the homes of the Darby family and their decendents during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and many of the rooms are lavishly decorated with the original furniture.

Adjacent to Rosehill House is Dale House, which includes the original wood-panelled study, where the great Quaker Ironmaster Abraham Darby III finalised his preparations and plans for the construction of the worlds first iron bridge. As you wonder around the Darby Houses, you can read extracts from the personal Darby family papers, giving you further insight into the thoughts of this revolutionary family.
