Trentham Hall is an estate in Stoke-On-Trent in Staffordshire, England. It was one of the estates of the Duke of Sutherland. It was abandoned in 1905 after sewage and effluent from nearby potteries polluted the Trent River which fed the lake in the early 20th century, making life at the hall unpleasant. Most of it was demolished in 1912 but the gardens remain, probably not looking exactly like this.
Edward Adveno Brooke (1821–1910) appears to primarily have been a landscape painter who strayed into the realm of painting gardens.
