Bosworth Hall
This image is a copy photograph of a postcard of Bosworth Hall from early years of the twentieth century. In the foreground is the older portion, which was built to a mediaeval plan with many gables. Behind this stands the red brick Baroque house built in 1792-3 for F. E. Turville.

Originally connected only by a passage, remodelling of the older part in 1873 brought the two houses together. A priest's hole is located in the north wing of the older building, and F. E. Turville had a Roman Catholic Chapel built in the grounds of the Hall.

Letters from Bosworth Hall between 1782 and 1806 show the family name variously written as Turvile and Turville and form a part of the Constable-Maxwell Manuscripts deposited in the Leicestershire Record Office. They refer to many aspects of National, County and Parish history and were written by chaplains, keeping the family informed of estate and neighbourhood news, and even political events and national affairs while the family lived in France.
