Gatehouse, walls and bollards to Maer Hall, Maer - Newcastle-under-Lyme

Late C18 gatehouse, walls and bollards forming the approach to Maer Hall. The Hall is set in an early C19 park by John Webb. The property is associated with the Wedgwood and Darwin families. The condition of the gatehouse continues to deteriorate with repairs to the roof, gables and stonework required. Stabilising works have taken place and further negotiations are underway regarding more permanent repairs.
