Mow Cop Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Staffordshire...

This hill-top village is famous for its "castle", visible on the skyline for miles around.

It is, in fact, a folly built to improve the view from Rode Hall three miles away.

It was here that, in May 1807, Primitive Methodism was born when two local men called an open-air meeting which lasted 14 hours.

When the castle was given to the National Trust in 1937, 10,000 Methodists met on the hill to mark the occasion.

A Museum of Primitive Methodism is now open at Englesea Brook
