Things to do in Maer, Staffordshire

Maer is a rural village located on the borders of Staffordshire, Cheshire and Shropshire, to the west of the pottery manufacturing town of Stoke-on-Trent.

Its main feature is the large 17th century stone built country house Maer Hall, built on a slope above a small lake or "mere", which gave the estate its name. The Hall became the home of Josiah Wedgwood II and was frequently visited by his nephew Charles Darwin.

The entrance to the village is dominated by the 12th century Maer Hall and St.Peters Church where Charles Darwin and Emma Wedgewood married.

Getting out and about from Maer couldn't be easier. Situated within easy reach of the Midlands major road networks and have plenty of interesting places to visit nearby.
