Upmeads

From Tether 3, page 17

Upmeads, a house named after a tiny country in the mythical tales of William Morris, stands on the edge of the county town of Stafford.1 Four-square, fortress-like, forbidding and strange, this house has inspired strong feelings, both positive and negative, since it was built in 1908. The house was built for a member of the Bostock family, founders of the most famous shoe company in Britain. Frederick Bostock was known to be a man of advanced architectural ideas and, with his indomitable and artistic wife, Mabel, he sought to commission a house that would show this.
