Remains of Trentham Hall, the Grand Entrance and Orangery, Park Drive, Trentham Gardens, Swynnerton - Stafford

The remains of a country house dated between 1833 and 1842 by Sir Charles Barry and an orangery of 1808 by Tatham, all situated in a C18 and C19 park by Capability Brown. Although the adjacent Italian gardens have been successfully restored, the existing Grade II* structures remain at risk. Historic England is working with the owner to explore a way forward for their repair or reuse.
