- Darley Abbey is named from the Abbey of St Mary of Darley, founded in 1137. After the Dissolution, its land was leased firstly to Sir Henry Sacheverall, then to Sir William West, who used its stone for building the first Darley Hall, in Darley Park. Only one small building now remains from the Abbey, and the first Hall is gone too, being replaced in 1727 by a building which in turn was demolished in 1962.
