"HADDON, (Over and Nether Haddon) townships in the parish of Bakewell, county Derby, 2 miles S.E. of Bakewell. They are situated on the river Wye, and contain several good houses. The tithes were commuted for land and a money payment under an Enclosure Act in 1806. At this place is Haddon Hall, the old baronial seat of the Vernons, one of whom, Sir George Vernon, is celebrated in story as "King of the Peak". The whole building, which is still nearly perfect, is situated on a limestone rock overlooking the river Wye."
