Derby from Castlefields
Ref No:DMAG200234
Town Village:Derby
Title:Derby from Castlefields
Further Information:

This is a prospect of Derby from the south east, showing Castlefields House in the foreground. Built 1712-13 by Isaac Borrow who twice served as Mayor of Derby in 1730 and 1742. It was built of brick with dressings of Ashover Grit with gardens laid out geometrically, perhaps by William Emes. It was demolished in 1836 for land development of the Park Street area. This large oil painting was given to Rev Borough by his cousin J G B Borough who thought it would be of greater interest in Derbyshire. The painting had been taken to Chetwynd Park, Shropshire, when Thomas Brough removed there in 1803. He also took all the deer from the park so the deer now at Chetwynd are the descendants of those in the painting. In the top centre are the arms of Borrow impaling Burton.
