aerial photograph of Barlaston Hall , Staffordshire England UK . Barlaston Hall is a Grade I listed Palladian Mansion built 1756Ð58 and bought by the Wedgwood pottery company in 1937, who constructed a pottery and model employee village in the grounds. From the 1960s the hall was pretty much abandoned and by the early 1980s in a very poor state of repair and suffering from mining related subsidence. At this point it was purchased and rescued by the charity SAVE Britain's Heritage. The charity restored the fabric and exterior of the building and it is now a private residence.
