Codnor is also home to Codnor Castle; situated on a ridge overlooking the Erewash Valley in Derbyshire, Codnor Castle has a very rich history and dates back to the late 12th or early 13th century and was the home and power base to one of medieval England’s most powerful families for 300 years; the De Grey family, otherwise known as the Barons Grey of Codnor. It is the only remaining one of two medieval castles still standing in Derbyshire, the other being Peveril Castle.
