Previous - Next

Osmaston Hall, the Residence of S. Fox., Esq., is a large Italian house, and the park contains some fine old ash trees, sycamores, broad-leaved elms, English elms, and one or two Cornish elms of which we have been promised portraits. Mr. Fox is curious in all that relates to horticulture, and, as a magistrate, has been active in promoting many public improvements in Derbyshire.
