Rudest house in Staffordshire

Madeley Old Hall is slap bang in the centre of the village, overlooking the Pool. It's an interesting seventeenth century building in its own right, but new passers-by always look shocked by the motto written over the ground floor windows.  It reads "WALLK KNAVE . WHAT LOOKEST AT" - which is just about the rudest thing I've heard a house utter!
Still, I guess it stops those who might wish to stare in its windows...

The hall is now a 'boutique' bed & breakfast
