Hawkesyard Estate


Set on the edge of the Cannock Chase countryside lies Armitage Park, the history of which can be traced back to 1270 when local gentry used the land for hunting. In 1337 Simon de Rugeley commissioned the construction on Hawkesyard Hall but by 1660 the hall lay in ruins. It wasn't until 1759, when the estate was purchased by Nathaniel Lister, that the hall really took shape. Lister, a poet, author and founder of the Census, had married Martha Fletcher, a Lichfield heiress, and they built the extension to the south-west wing in Gothic Revival style, with structures of stuccoed brick work, battlements and pinnacles.

Hawkesyard Estate provides a romantic setting for your Wedding celebrations, located on the edge of Cannock Chase countryside and one of Staffordshire’s premier venues for wedding celebrations. Just 10 minutes from Lichfield and 20 minutes from Stafford and Cannock, Hawkesyard Estate boasts a magnificent Grade II listed building dating back to the 13th Century.
