Alton Towers and attached garden walls and gatehouse, Alton Park, Farley - Staffordshire Moorlands

Country house, walls and gatehouse, c1810, set in early C19 valley gardens. Derelict when listed. A complete condition survey was undertaken and emergency work completed. The superb Pugin designed Banqueting Hall stained glass windows are currently being repaired. A Conservation Management Plan for the whole site has been prepared and a phased programme of works is ongoing to a number of buildings and structures within the Historic Park and Garden. However, there is no overall solution or long term use for the hall at present.
