Etruria Hall 7015

Stoke-on-Trent, England

Brief Description

The grounds have been built over, though some of the site was incorporated into the Stoke Garden Festival in 1980s. The house is now part of the Stoke-on-Trent Moat House Hotel.

History

The grade II listed house was built around 1770, for Josiah Wedgwood (1730 - 1795). It was designed by Joseph Pickford of Derby, and extensively remodelled in the early-19th century. Pickford also designed the factory which was separated from the hall by the Trent and Mersey canal. William Emes worked on the park. The site is notable as the former home of John Wedgwood, founder of the Royal Horticultural Society. The Wedgwood family lived here until their factory was moved from Etruria to Barlaston.
