Temple Hotel, Matlock Bath
The Temple Hotel is perched on the hillside overlooking Matlock Bath
and the Derwent Valley below. Dating from 1750, the mainly Georgian
served as an annex for the old Matlock Bath Hotel. Several famous
people stayed here, including Princess Victoria (before she became Queen)
and the poet Lord Byron. Their names are etched on one of the windows
of the hotel - historical grafitti!
The Hotel and its proprietors can be traced in the Census for:
