Regeneration of important historic industrial landscape
The Chatterley Whitfield Colliery site in Stoke on Trent represents one of the most important historic industrial landscapes remaining in England. It has been called the ‘Stonehenge of the Industrial revolution’ and is a Scheduled Ancient Monument. Our landscape masterplan set out to reinforce the historic references of the site whilst shifting the general function and character towards existing and future needs.
The industrial structures remain amidst a new landscape informed by ecological processes and new social and cultural needs. This powerful dynamic between buildings and landscape is helping create a new identity for Chatterley Whitfield.
Our work has begun a new chapter in the evolution of the site based around a sense of history, a new ecology, community involvement and the shaping of a sculpted landscape.
