Trentham & St Mowden

Breathing life into communities and creating places that matter, St. Modwen pouchased The Trentham Estate in 1996.


The Trentham Estate

The Trentham Estate was purchased by St. Modwen in 1996.

The £100 million transformation has brought listed buildings back to life, reinstated the extensive flower gardens and restored historic parkland, where 10,000 native trees have been planted.

A magical Fairy Trail, a hide and speak maze, the UK’s first Barefoot Walk and a 42-seat battery-operated catamaran called ‘Miss Elizabeth’ was also introduced. This is in addition to the development of Trentham Shopping Village and Garden Centre as well an all-year round events programme.

The Fairy ‘Wishes’ was added in 2004 to mark the 10th anniversary of Trentham’s official re-opening. The Fairy, seen holding a dandelion clock, marks the passing of time and how the wish of St. Modwen Properties PLC’s founder, Sir Stanley Clarke – to regenerate the famous Staffordshire Estate – has come true in such spectacular style.
