Fisherman on the Wedgwood Estate at Barlaston, Staffordshire.

Barlaston Hall, in the background, is an English Palladian country house on a ridge overlooking the valley of the River Trent to the west, about 5 miles (8.0 km) south of Stoke-on-Trent, with the towns of Stone about 4 miles (6.4 km) to the south, and Stafford about 11 miles (18 km) south. It was bought by the Wedgwood pottery company in 1937, but disrepair and subsidence due to coal mining brought the hall close to demolition in the early 1980s. It was bought for £1 by a trust set up by SAVE Britain’s Heritage and restored. It has returned to use as a private residence. The hall is a Grade I listed building.
