Maer Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Staffordshire...

A pleasant little village with an attractive sandstone church standing on high ground looking down on the impressive Maer Hall. In 1839, when the hall was owned by Josiah Wedgwood II, son of the famous potter, his daughter married her cousin, Charles Darwin, who started work on his "Origin of the Species" whilst staying at the hall. Nearby Maer Hills is an area of mainly coniferous woodland with wide forest tracks and public footpaths providing excellent walking opportunities.
Not far from Maer on the A51 towards Woore is the beautiful Dorothy Clive Garden.

The entrance from the main road is a plain gateway, almost hidden from view, but what it hides is an amazing display of plants and colour. Teashop.
