  • Notes 
    • Blore Hall was the home of the Bassett family, from whom the Queen is descended; William Bassett, the last of the male line, died in 1601 and his magnificent alabaster tomb, erected by his wife about 1630, can be seen in the church.
      The hall was first mentioned in 1331, though only one building remains substantially unaltered since 1661
      Blore Church was built around 1100 and is Grade 1 listed.
