House Removals Staffordshire
Staffordshire is a landlocked county located in the West Midlands and home to cities and large towns such as Stoke-on-Trent, Stafford, Burton upon Trent, Cannock, and Tamworth. There are a range of contemporary and historical attractions to enjoy whilst living in Staffordshire, as well as vast expanses of picturesque countryside. The county is characterised by some charming towns which contrast nicely against the more thriving towns and cities.
Moving to Staffordshire
Lichfield is a popular option for those moving to Staffordshire and is championed for being a medieval market town, despite it having city status. Similarly, the market town of Uttoxter is loved for its historical ambience and also has a beautiful racecourse that stages a number of races and events annually.
Leek is a very pretty town due to being located in stunning countryside. It is set 600 feet above sea level, giving residents who live there unique views of the surrounding landscapes. During the industrial revolution, Leek became a hub for textiles production which can still be seen in the town today. However, it is most famous for its farming, with a cattle market taking place regularly as it has done so for many years.
