Padley Hall was a large double courtyard house where, in 1588, two Catholic priests (Nicholas Garlick and Robert Ludlum) were discovered and then, two weeks later, hanged, drawn and quartered in Derby. They became known as the 'Padley Martyrs'. The house today is mostly in ruins, and is a Scheduled Monument.
Part of Padley Hall—probably originally the central gatehouse range—survives, and in 1933 was converted to a Roman Catholic chapel in honour of the martyrs. The chapel is a Grade I listed building which stands not far from the railway line, a short distance west of Grindleford railway station. A pilgrimage takes place every year in July.
