Greystones 17th Century House, Leek, Staffordshire
This attractive 17th century house in Leek is a grade II* listed building. William Morris (Arts and Crafts movement) campaigned to prevent this building's destruction in 1877. The tower behind belongs to the Nicholson Institute, now Leek Public Library. The Institute was built in 1882 by Larner Sugden who did not want his magnificent building to obscure the view of Greystones and would not countenance its destruction. The wrought-iron gate of Greystones is a superb and complex piece of work.
