Trentham Hall late the princely seat of the Duke of Sutherland,
is situated in the vicinity of the pretty little village of Trentham.
It is a handsome building, in the Italian style of architecture,
from the centre of which rises a campanile tower 100 feet high.
Despite its somewhat modern appearance the Hall
is in reality a very old place, its history dating back as an Elizabethan mansion,
an Augustinian priory of the reign of Henry I.,
and a nunnery of King Alfred's time.
