A modest market town close to the wild beauty of Cannock Chase, Rugeley lies on the Trent and Mersey Canal and until the late 20th century was an important centre for coal mining. In the 19th century it hit the headlines when one of its citizens, the infamous surgeon William Palmer, was hanged for a poisoning spree.
