More about

The Herrick family had the present Beaumanor Hall built in the 1840s, in an Elizabethan style, by the architect William Railton. During the Second World War the War Office requisitioned the Beaumanor Estate for war work and it became a strategic intercept station, known as a 'Y station'. Enemy radio transmissions were intercepted and the information was sent everyday by motorbike to Bletchley Park, 'Station X', for decryption and analysis. When the estate was sold in 1946 the War Office bought the hall and some of the land.
