Save Walton's Cottage

JUST 350 years after the publication of IzaakWalton's "Compleat Angler", a battle is on to preserve his cottage at Shallowford, Staffordshire, as an angling museum.

The threat by Stafford Borough Council to close the cottage has been greeted with dismay by officials and members of the 50,000 members of the Izaak Walton League in America.

This cottage, together with the farm of Halfhead, and the surrounding land, was purchased by Walton in 1654, and left as a charity to the people of Stafford in his will. Time has seen the disposal of the surrounding farm and land, but the sixteenth century, thatched cottage remains as a small angling museum and a link with that father of angling, Izaak Walton. This year is the 350th anniversary of that most famous of English classics "The Compleat Angler', the third most published book in the world, next to the Bible and the works of Shakespeare.

Members of the Izaak Walton League of America have decided to raise funds and have set up a trust fund to run the cottage as an independent charity, to remain as a small museum to the memory of Walton and lovers of his books.

Tony Bridgett, who is the main source of information and interest in the Cottage in the UK, as well as of Walton and his life, recently raised $10,500 after giving a talk on the subject to the US charity. Tony has now formed a branch of the League here in England, called the UK Izaak Walton Cottage Chapter. He is at present in negotiations with Stafford Borough Council to set up an independent charitable trust, to raise funds to ensure the future of the cottage. They started their fund-raising campaign at the British Flyfair, at Trentham Gardens on the weekend of 25th and 26th October and are now looking for funds to help with this project.

Tony hopes to save the cottage so that future generations of anglers can enjoy this link with our angling heritage.
For further details contact Tony Bridgett on 01538 373163.
