Blink as you drive through and you could miss this village which is more of an area than a collection of dwellings. The old village forge can be seen at Balterley Smithy where farm horses were shod and agricultural implements were made before mechanisation. |
But nearby is a jewel for many that they could easily miss. Turn north at Balterley and you reach the small hamlet of Englesea Brook. The old chapel built in 1828 has also been opened as a museum of Primitive Methodism and, if this interests you, it is well worth a visit.
