Cheadle is an old historic market town in the Staffordshire moorlands, approximately 10 miles east of the city of Stoke-on-Trent. It is now a lively town centre full of amenities and benefits from good positioning for the surrounding areas.

Of particular interest to the visitor is the splendid church of St. Giles with its spire standing at over 200 feet, designed by Pugin in the 19th century, it stands impressively over the town. Many consider it to be the masterpiece of the architect, Pugin. The basis of the town’s economy over the centuries arises from various areas, including mining, agriculture and manufacturing. Now the town relies upon manufacturing as its main source of income. No mines are operating in the area and the amount of agriculture has died off considerably throughout the second half of the 20th century. Alton Towers theme park is close by, as are the towns of Leek and Uttoxeter.
