Removal Company Eccleshall
The small town of Eccleshall is located in the west of Staffordshire. The county town, Stafford, is eleven kilometres to the south-east of Eccleshall, and the town of Stone is ten kilometres to the east. The town is connected through various ‘A’ roads, meaning that despite its rather rural location, it is relatively easy to reach the larger surrounding towns such as Stafford, Stoke-on-Trent and Newport.
As is the case with many settlements, the first records of Eccleshall are detailed in the 1086 Doomsday Book, where it is described as a village with approximately one hundred residents. It became a market town in 1153, and by 1298 the population had increased to an estimated five hundred. As the road network began to expand in the 1700s, Eccleshall benefited from its location; it was on the main road between Chester and London and served as a useful stop-off point for coaches, meaning that inns and pubs enjoyed particular prosperity. Shoe-making was the main industry of Eccleshall, but Stafford’s superior machinery in the early 1900s effectively ended the industry.
The small size of the town means that Eccleshall primarily serves as a commuter town; this is in many ways unsurprising, given that Stafford is only 15 minutes away by car and Stoke-on-Trent is only 20 minutes. Locally, farming is still practiced in the abundance of green space surrounding the town, and the produce will be sold in the town on market days. There unusually are seven pubs in Eccleshall even though the town is not highly populated, and these serve as a remnant of Eccleshall’s past as a coaching stop-off point. The shopping streets of the town are very pleasant with period features; businesses in the town include the Co-Op supermarket, the confectionery company Mr Simms, office spaces and a range of independent businesses.
Eccleshall is a sought-after location for a move, and this is reflected in the house prices, which average at £341,137. A three-bedroom house on average costs £256,150 while movers looking at a larger five-bedroom house can expect to pay £513,664. Rents are also relatively high; a two-bedroom flat to rent comes in at £693 per month, all according to Zoopla. Generally, house prices increase the further out the house is from the centre of Eccleshall, as the properties are likely to be bigger; amongst the most expensive addresses are the Wooton and Walk Hill streets.
Eccleshall has a population of only 4,651, according to the 2011 Census; more recent estimates place the figure now closer to 5000. With an average age of 45, the population of Eccleshall collectively are considerably older than the national population, which has an average of 40. 95% of the population are native to the United Kingdom. Generally, the population appears to be affluent; the most common job sectors for Eccleshall residents according to the 2011 Census are Managerial and Directorial, Skilled Trades, and Associate Managerial and Technical.
The town has a range of community events, all of which primarily revolve around its market town heritage and the agriculture that is practiced in the fields surrounding the town. There is a market day every month, as well as an annual ‘Ecclesfield Show’ which is held in the summer, usually at Sugnall Parks. The Gentleshaw Wildlife Centre, located just outside the town, is well worth a visit, where it cares for over 30 species of exotic animals.
