The Stewponey Inn was formerly situated at the cross roads, until it was demolished to make way for housing. The king resumed possession of the manor in 1293 and granted it back to John (probably the other's grandson) for life.
The king granted the keepership of the forest to Hugh Tyrel in 1339, adding the manor in 1340, but the property was in wardship from 1343 until the majority of another Hugh Tyrel in 1362.

Andrew Lovatt Antiques specialise in carefully chosen furnishing items of high quality we offer antiques dating from the 18th, 19th and early 20th century, our Antiques Business was established in 1997.
The field that fueled the Potteries (as the industry that dominated the towns of Burslem, Fenton, Hanley, Longton, Stoke, and Tunstall is still known) covered roughly 100 square miles.
One of the leading potters of the 18th century was Thomas Whieldon, who made everything from black tea and coffee pots to knife hafts for Sheffield cutlers to plates with richly ornamented edges.
Whieldon had many apprentices (Josiah Spode and Ralph Wood are two of the most important) and he was a business partner for about five years with Josiah Wedgwood, who learned a lot from Whieldon before establishing his own firm in 1759.
Though rightly famous for his creamware, which was lightweight and seemed to shine thanks to its luminous glaze, Wedgwood also developed a line of unglazed black stoneware known as the basaltes.
Private by appointment only, our pieces are offered in pristine condition having been professionally restored by most experienced and time served French Polishers, Gilders and Upholsterers.
A family run business based in Leek, Staffordshire.
