Cheddleton & District Through Time, Paperback / softback Book

Cheddleton & District Through Time Paperback / softback

Part of the Through Time series

Description

Cheddleton is located on the road from Leek to Cheadle, settled in the rolling landscape of North Staffordshire.

For a village, there is far more to Cheddleton than meets the eye.

It boasts a number of grand gentlemen's residences, mostly still occupied as private homes, a beautiful cruck-framed farmhouse and two museums; one dedicated to the railway, and the other to the village's watermills and industrial past.

It has the River Churnet, the Caldon, a canal, three pubs, three shops and a post office. For more than a century, it was also the home of the county asylum, housing 600-800 psychiatric patients.

Then there are the people: Cheddleton boasts a multi medal winning Olympian, and connections with George Gilbert-Scott, William Morris and Vera Brittain.

Compare this with other villages or even small towns, and you will feel that Cheddleton really is a richly interesting place with a friendly and welcoming community.
