Izaak Walton Cottage Chapter

The Izaak Walton Cottage, near Stafford in England, was once owned by IZAAK WALTON.

He purchased it in 1654. Upon his death he left the Cottage to the people of Stafford to provide a charity. The small thatched 16th-century cottage houses a museum to Walton and his life. Walton is mostly remembered for his book The Compleat Angler. 
In 2003, the custodians, Stafford Borough Council, wanted to close the cottage down. Under protests from people in the IWLA in America and friends in England, the cottage was saved from closure. In 2003, the chapter was Chartered by the League.
