Long Description:
The home of the Earls of Lichfield, apartments within this house were occupied by Lord Lichfield, the well known photographer, until his death in 2016.

From wikipedia:-
The hall is situated on the edge of Cannock Chase, about 4 miles east of Stafford. The estate was owned by the Bishops of Lichfield until the Dissolution of the Monasteries, upon which it passed through several hands before being purchased in 1624 by William Anson, a local lawyer and ancestor of the Earls of Lichfield. The estate remained in the Anson family for three centuries. Following the death of the 4th Earl of Lichfield in 1960, the estate was allocated to the National Trust in lieu of death duties, and then immediately leased to Staffordshire County Council. Management of the estate was returned to the National Trust in 2016.
