Richard, the 6th Duke of Derwent Dale (1733-1790) had two loves: his racing thoroughbreds and the gaming tables. Fortunately, he had great success with both, and was able to build the extensive stables to the rear of Carsingthorpe Lodge with his winnings. Duke Richard also restyled the guest quarters of the Lodge in order that his visitors might have a splendid view of the stables and his most cherished horses. He added to the family's property portfolio with the acquisition of the Packhorse Bridge Public House some ten miles north of the Carsingthorpe Estate, and the Fetterlock Tavern (formerly the Jolly Sailor) close to Greenwich Docks in London. Both properties are still owned by the family to this day.
