Possessing many half-timbered buildings, an Elizabethan shop and several old coaching inns, this splendidly evocative market town lies close to the Staffordshire border with Derbyshire on the River Tean. It is famously associated with the father of Lichfield’s Samuel Johnson who ran a bookstall on the local market. In modern times it has become noted for his racecourse, which stages the annual Midlands Grand National.

Bagot’s Wood lies nearby and some miles away is the 17th century mansion Sudbury Hall - built by George Vernon – which has an unusually ornate staircase and a Long Gallery.
