Located in the Midlands, Staffordshire possessed various hillforts erected in the Late Bronze and Iron Ages, including Kinver Edge and Castle Ring. When this area became part of the Roman Empire, the town of Letocetum grew up at the intersection of the important Watling and Ryknield Streets, its ruins now part of the modern town of Wall. The Middle Ages saw the creation of fortifications such as Stafford Castle and Tamworth Castle, as well as religious establishments like Croxden Abbey, left as a ruin in the wake of Henry VIII’s Dissolution of the Monasteries. Staffordshire also has several significant early modern buildings within its borders, including the Ancient High House and Izaak Walton’s Cottage. From the 17th century, the Staffordshire town of Stoke-on-Trent became an internationally famous hub for the pottery industry, a heritage now explored at the Potteries Museum and the World of Wedgewood.
