Four Ashes Hall & Estate was started around 1660 by Henry Wollaston who came from a tanning family further north in Staffordshire and forms the core of the house today.

Passing through the generations the estate has remained in the same family for 350 years. A lack of change or modernisation over this time has resulted in something of a time capsule.

In 1997 Stephen Thompson became the latest member of the family to inherit and he is now in the process of restoring the house, outbuildings and gardens.
