Ilam Hall, Staffordshire (NC 357)
A view of Ilam Hall from outside the tea rooms, looking across the Italianate gardens over to Thorpe Cloud and Dovedale. The original hall building, dating from the 1820’s, was much grander in scale than the current elevation from this vantage point. A large part of it was demolished in the 1930’s before the remaining section was saved for the YHA. The National Trust maintain the grounds and serve lovely refreshments in their tearooms – where it’s possible to sit outside and enjoy this stunning view.
