Rolleston on Dove, Staffordshire

Rolleston on Dove, also known simply as Rolleston, is a village in Staffordshire, England near Burton upon Trent. It is probably best known for its one-time resident Sir Oswald Mosley, the founder of the British Union of Fascists. His coat of arms are still displayed in the local working men's club. The hall where Mosley lived was sold by auction on 2 August 1923 but later burnt down and all that remains are the lake and gatehouse.
