A lounge or drawing room in Cromford Court. When this room was designed the plasterers must have been first rate as they produced some exquisite work on the ceiling, above the fireplace and around the doors and windows.

In the 1930s groups of carol singers in the district raised money for charity and it was undoubtedly in this room that a group of Cromford Court's guests practised for a carol concert in 1933 when the Willersley and Cromford Court guest-houses joined forced. Mrs. A. Barker (Cromford Court) and Mr. F. Mutton (Willersley Castle) acted as conductors. Miss Barbara Grundy, of Derby, a member of the Cromford Court party, gave a solo[1].
