Caverswall is a traditional village located within the rural area of the Staffordshire Moorlands. Listed in the Doomsday Book, 1086, it has its very own moated medieval castle that dates back to 1275 A.D. and is just a short walk from the Auctioneers Arms pub. It has its own set of stocks in the heart of the village which evidences times gone by.
Our village has views over the Staffordshire countryside, plenty of meandering public footpaths linking nearby villages and is very popular with ramblers and interesting lanes for cyclists. It is also close to the theme park of Alton Towers and not far from the stunning Trentham Gardens, originally owned by the Duke of Sutherland.
Caverswall and Cookshill are steeped in history, ideal for exploring the sights and attractions of the Staffordshire Moorlands and the various fabulous pottery museums and ‘potbanks’ of Stoke-on-Trent: affectionately known as ‘The Potteries’. The Foxfield Railway, which is also close by, was built in 1892-1893 to provide a link to the national railway network for the now closed Foxfield Colliery. The railway, to this day, has steam engines running at weekends and this is a very popular tourist attraction. Now run by volunteers, it serves to remind you of Caverswall’s connection with its industrial past. Particularly when you hear the sound of a steam engine’s whistle hoot over the village!
