HISTORIC Barlaston Hall, rescued from a demolition threat and bought by a conservation group for £1 in 1981, is on the market - with an asking price of £2.3 million.
The Grade I listed hall was built in the 1750s by Sir Robert Taylor for a local lawyer and was bought by the Wedgwood family in 1937.
The house later fell into disrepair and the structure was weakened by mining subsidence.
Funding from English Heritage, The Historic Buildings Council and the government helped restore it, with work completed in 1990.
The house last changed hands in 1992, and the current sale is being handled by Knight Frank, who describe it as “an architectural triumph”.
