​About Staffordshire
Staffordshire is renowned for the craftsmanship of its world-famous potteries in Stoke on Trent and in the late 18th century North Staffordshire was the largest producer of ceramics in Britain.
Most of the geographic county of Staffordshire is still agricultural, and dairy farming is particularly important. It’s also home to the famous River Severn and its infamous Severn Bore.
Sitting between the ever-expanding urban areas of Birmingham and Manchester it is still a rural area with the hills of the Peak District in the North.
