Izaak Walton's Cottage

Worston Lane, Shallow Ford, Nr. Stone
Stafford ST15 0PA


Izaak Walton, author of the 'Compleat Angler', owned this charming cottage that nestles in the tiny hamlet of Shallowford, between Stafford and Eccleshall. His charming thatched 16th century half-timbered cottage will be of interest to anglers and non anglers alike. It offers a marvellous insight into the history of fishing and the literary talent of Stafford's famous son.
