Hidden in Plain Sight – Post 56

This house was built in the late 17th century with a few alterations made to it during the early 20th century. It was saved from demolition in 1877 thanks to the campaign by the famous founder of the Arts & Craft movement, William Morris, who was living and working in Leek between 1875 and 1878.

It was restored and ran as a tea room by the start of this century but I’ve personally not seen it open for business for a while but at least someone regularly attempts to prune and tidy the garden.

English Heritage granted a Grade II listing on 13 April 1951 and the garden wall and gate piers were granted their own Grade II listing on 7 June 1972.
