Congleton’s Henshall Hall Has Ties With Sandyford

Henshall Hall was once owned by Stuart Johnson who also owned Johnson’s Potteries in Tunstall as well as later in Sandyford.

The ties linked in from a stately home in Congleton to Sandyford is due to Stuart Johnson having properties built in Sandyford, and him naming Henshall Place after the residence he owned back in Cheshire.

This piece of history links anyone living in Henshall Place to Stuart Johnson wanting some of his grandeur back into Stoke on Trent and especially Sandyford, unfortunately the hall was demolished back in 1975 after suffering severe fire damage.
