Bretby means ‘dwelling place of Britons’ and was mentioned in the Domesday book. The remains of Bretby castle lie in Castle field. The castle was demolished during the reign of James 1st in the 1640’s, the gardens (created by the 2nd Earl of Chesterfield) were said to rival those of Versailles. Bretby Hall was built on the site of the castle, once owned by Lord Carnavon he sold it in the 1920’s to finance his expedition to find Tutankhamun’s tomb. Near the village green, a set of ancient stocks is passed on the way to St Wystans Church where a plaque commemorating Benjamin Disraeli’s frequent visits to the Chesterfields is displayed.
