It has been announced by Stoke On Trent City Council that some of the City's greatest treasures are under threat of being closed. Ford Green Hall, Stoke On Trent's oldest home, is one of the gems the City council have threatent to close, and we will be fighting any proposals to close this great landmark to our heritage.rnrnFord Green Hall is a 17th century timber-framed farmhouse complete with period garden. An award-winning museum, the Hall offers visitors a fascinating insight into the life of the 17th century. The rooms are furnished with an outstanding collection of textiles, ceramics and furniture.

    It is unthinkable that this building should be closed to the public. Wherelse can local children learn how older people survived before ipods and xbox's

    It would be such a shame for the oldest home in this area to be closed, apart from the fact that schools have access, and also activities for the children in the holidays.

    One of Stoke-on-Trent's major historical treasures is under threat and needs action.This shows a lack of foresight by councillors and contempt for the people who elected them.
