558 Mottram St Andrew

Mottramite is so rare and precious that its discovery in 1877 made Mottram St Andrew famous. The mineral, used in hardening steel, brought prosperity and even the labouring poor were allocated allotments. But now the village is even richer, providing grand homes to wealthy commuters.
