Crich, Derbyshire

Florence Nightingale (1820-1910) was born in Florence, but lived at her father's mansion, Lea Hurst, on the River Derwent near Crich, about 10 miles N of Derby, until 1825. The family moved to Wellow but continued using this house as a summer home for some years. It is now a retirement home, on the east side of the A6.
