Synopsis

This classic guide examines in detail the rolling landscape and the varied history of Staffordshire, from Wedgwood's pottery to Alton Towers. Also included are the original photographs, providing an insight into this industrial yet beautiful county.



The King's England series was Arthur Mee's richly informative and amazingly comprehensive survey of England, and set the pattern for books on British heritage ever since. He describes the most interesting houses, churches, views and towns in the country, together with the folklore and history behind them.



From the original edition:



`Nothing like these books has ever been presented to the English people. Every place has been visited. The Compilers have travelled half-a-million miles and have prepared a unique picture of our countryside as it has come down through the ages, a census of all that is enduring and worthy of record.'
