Hawkesyard Hall near Rugeley, Staffordshire
Nathaniel Lister, (poet and author, Member of Parliament for Clitheroe and uncle of Baron Ribblesdale) had the house built in the Gothic Revival style in about 1760.
Josiah Spode IV, greatgrandson of Josiah Spode bought the estate in about 1840 and the house was much altered and extended. At this time it was known as Spode House.

The present owners, who have converted this superb Grade II listed building into offices and a conference centre, see fit to ruin its appearance with a huge banner advertising its facilities. Maybe the fools really think doing that attracts more customers than it puts off. Surely 99% (?) of its business these days comes from its web site and other advertising.
