HADDON (OVER), a township in the parish of BAKEWELL, hundred of HIGH-PEAK, county of DERBY 2 miles (S.W. by S.) from Bakewell, containing 266 inhabitants. At this place is Haddon Hall, one of the ancient baronial mansions, delightfully situated on a gentle, eminence overlooking the river Wye; the venerable castellated towers rising above the woods produce a magnificent effect, and as the whole building is still in nearly a perfect state, it is an object of general interest and curiosity.
