Removal Company Staffordshire
Staffordshire is a West Midlands county, surrounded by Cheshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Warwickshire, the West Midlands, Worcestershire and Shropshire. Two towns lie within the county’s borders; Stoke-on-Trent and Lichfield. However, the county town is Stafford, and other prominent settlements include Burton-upon-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme. Staffordshire has a hilly landscape, and the National Forest and Peak District National Park extend into its territory, as well as containing the Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The county is keen to retain its rural areas and has various green belt areas designated around the main cities and towns.
Historically, Staffordshire was once divided into five ‘hundreds’, which are essentially districts; these were Totmonslow, Pirehill, Offlow, Cuttleston, and Seisdon. It is believed that this was changed, and Staffordshire roughly as we know it was formed, in the year 913, when Stafford was made into a fort and the capital of the ancient Mercia kingdom. Much more recently in 1974, Staffordshire changed again due to the removal of Wolverhampton, Walsall and West Bromwich; these settlements became part of the newly created West Midlands county, located to the south-east of Staffordshire.
Particularly around Stoke-on-Trent, there is a tradition and heritage within Staffordshire for pottery. Many of the globally-leading pottery companies still operate in the region such as Churchill China, as do familiar brands such as Emma Bridgewater which still hand-paint all their products locally. There are other large companies based in Staffordshire; betting company bet365 has its office in Stoke-on-Trent, JCB is based in Rocester, and the Alton Towers Theme Park and Resort is located in is in the north of the county and employs over 2000 people.
Staffordshire houses can be a real bargain. The average house costs only £194,970 – over £30,000 less than the national average – and this is despite the area having a lot of benefits. Stafford is particularly popular; it is ideal for commutes to Manchester, Birmingham and even London, and has been named in recent years as one of the happiest yet affordable places to live in the country. Stoke-on-Trent is up and coming, and a renovation project can cost less than £100,000. For more rural settings, there are plenty of small towns and villages to choose from for a move. These include Brocton and Biddulph.
There is currently estimated to be 1,126,200 people who reside in Staffordshire, making it the 17th most populous county in England. 97% of the population are White British. The average age of a Staffordshire resident is 42, two years above the national average of 40 and reflecting a slightly older population.
Staffordshire’s pottery-based heritage can be explored at various places in the county, including the Emma Bridgewater Factory and the Middleport Pottery. Also notable is Staffordshire’s canal network; the county has a longer overall length of canal network than any other county in the country, and these provide a great opportunity for a walk or a boat trip. The various natural areas within the county are other places to get outdoors and partake in a range of activities such as cycling and GoApe.
