Josiah Spode II (1754-1827) and The Mount Estate (Penkhull)
Auction Plan for the Mount - 1875
The original main entrance to The Mount was along a long carriageway from Hartshill Road, Princes Road and Queens Road did not exist then. (see map on the introduction page)
The auction plan reproduced below clearly shows the entrance from Princes Road and consequent reduction in the size of the Estate.
