About the location
Leek 3.5 miles.
The lovely Staffordshire village of Cheddleton is situated in the Staffordshire Moorlands, near to the market town of Leek. This traditional village has a handful of shops, a Post Office, pubs serving food and a lovely restaurant. Visit the nearby Churnet Valley Railway, originally opened in 1849 and now a lovely attraction for steam enthusiasts and families alike. Cheddleton Flint Mill is a prime example of Staffordshire's industrial past – a flint-grinding watermill previously used for supplying the pottery industry further along the canal in Stoke-on-Trent. Nearby is Leek, surrounded by lovely moorland countryside. The town has a charming cobbled market place, and there are many examples of fine Victorian architecture - a reminder of the town’s prosperity when it was renowned as a silk manufacturing centre. Today Leek offers a wide selection of shops including vast antique emporiums, bookshops and galleries and there is a good selection of restaurants and real ale pubs. Alton Towers is less than 20 minutes’ drive away, and throw in the mix of walks, cycle routes, rock climbing on the Roaches and the wealth of historic houses, and visitors will be returning again and again!
