Bunny

"Bunny is situated on the A60 Nottingham to Leicester road, about 7 miles south of the centre of Nottingham. Immediately to the south of Bunny are the rolling hills of the Wolds. A distinctive feature of the village, even from a distance, is the large red brick tower of Bunny Hall, the ancestral home of the Parkyns family. The hall has a high brick wall giving it privacy from the village, and enclosing a large area of parkland.
The whole area, apart from the wooded slopes of the escarpment to the south (where gypsum is quarried) is totally agricultural, where the farms were owned by the Parkyns family and leased to the tenant farmers."
[White's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]
