Mausoleum, Stone Road, Trentham
Mausoleum, Stone Road, Trentham
Opposite the main gates of Trentham Gardens is the only grade I listed building in Stoke-on-Trent. It features a solid oak door at the front, a window at the rear and an upper storey with four louvred windows, one on each flank. The gloomy interior, with its Greek Cross plan, has tunnel-vaulted arms. The ashlar walls slope inwards on all sides.

This mausoleum was built in 1807-8 to the design of Charles Heathcote Tatham of Trentham. In 1907 the bodies of the half-dozen members of the Levison-Gower family laid to rest in the catacombs were removed and buried in special lead coffins elsewhere within the cemetery compound; descriptive tablets were placed above each grave.
