Weaver Lodge at risk- another landmark building about to be lost to the developers for bland housing. This is nothing short of carpetbagging by ESBC if this planning application is approved. The Civic Society have complained about the planning application and hopefully we'll make the council see sense.
Let us know your thoughts

Roman Villa in Uttoxeter?

Where is the Roman Villa? The Uttoxeter Archaeology Society is planning an arial survey of the town's surrounding area to pinpoint what could be a major archaeological and historical find-A Roman Villa. It is unusual to find Roman Villa's in Staffordshire and this would change the way historians think about Roman Britain in this part of the country.

The William Salt library can't locate a copy there-so where is it? does it, did it exist? Who wrote the preface?
More on this as the story develops.
