Stafford (Staffordshire)


[world locations; geography]

"Staffordshire is a large county between the giant conurbations of Manchester 50 miles to the north and Birmingham 30 miles to the south. Stafford Borough lies at the heart of this diverse county. "

"Stafford Borough is steeped in history, from its Stone Age origins, through Roman and medieval times to modern industrial life. Its network of towns and villages with picturesque churches, castles and stately homes reflects the unique identity of this part of the north Midlands. Buildings such as the Ancient High House, the largest timber framed town house in England, and Shugborough, home to the Earls of Lichfield, attract visitors from across the world."

"If you’re ready for a delightful surprise then you’re ready to discover Staffordshire. Stafford, the County Town, is one of England’s most fascinating and beautiful towns and does perfect justice to its splendid setting. Staffordshire is the county just to the north of Birmingham in the heart of England. Nestling on the edge of Cannock Chase, an area of outstanding natural beauty, Stafford is a wonderful place to visit. The world-renowned potteries lie to the north, in and around the city of Stoke-on-Trent, where you will find Wedgwood, Royal Doulton, and Spode among many others. To the west of Stafford is Lichfield, with its magnificent Cathedral. Also to the west is the town of Burton-on-Trent, the home of Brewing. - HELEN'S BRITISH COOKING SITE"
