History of Stanley Palace 

Stanley Palace, formerly known as ‘Derby House,’ is a 16th-century building previously occupied by the Dominican Friars (The ‘Black Friars’) in medieval times.

It was built for a knight called Peter Warburton, a Chester Lawyer who became a sergeant-at-law and MP for Chester, a county finance manager, and a judge.

The house was passed to his daughter Elizabeth in 1621. She married Sir Thomas Stanley, who gave his name to the house.

It is known that Hesketh, a sporting gentleman, who held parties for the race-goers, once occupied the house before it deteriorated and became ‘three shabby cottages. The cottages passed from owner to owner, and in 1866 the Americans wished to transport the house to the USA, but Chester Archaeological Society blocked this.

In 1889, Edward Henry Stanley, 15th Earl of Derby, came to the rescue by buying it for the community. In 1911 it opened as a museum, and the three cottages merged to form one house again. Tunnels were found under a trap door that led to Chester Castle and the Watergate.

Finally, in 1928 the 17th Earl of Derby passed the house over to Chester City Council on a 999-year lease. The north wing was rebuilt in 1935

The house is timber-framed on an ashlar sandstone plinth in two stories. The south wall is brick, and the roofs are slate. There are four gables on the east face and three on the north face, which overlooks the street. There is a door on the east front and mullioned windows on both faces on the ground floor. The upper story is jettied with a moulded Bessemer. A ten-light mullioned and transformed window in each bay of the upper level on both fronts, each containing leaded lights. Below and to the sides of these windows are panels, most of which are decorated. In the gables are wavy herringbone struts. At the top of each roof is a finial.
