The bespoke artwork for Cheadle used nearby Abney Hall as a starting point. The Grade II Listed building’s architectural and decorative details really grabbed my attention. Although many architects were involved in creating and developing Abney, some of the buildings most beautiful elements were designed by Pugin.
Abney Hall has an interesting history. The last private owner of Abney Hall was Sir James Watts who happened to be Agatha Christie’s brother in law; she often visited and wrote two stories while staying there.
