Matlock, Derbyshire

Mathematical Gazetteer of the British Isles

From about Nov 1917 to mid 1918, Ramanujan stayed at Matlock House Sanatorium. The house was originally the Matlock House Hydro and is now Rutland Court. [1] It was here that he received Hardy's telegram in early March announcing that he was elected FRS [2].
