Things to do in Bramshall, Staffordshire
Bramshall is a pleasant village which lies just 2 miles west of the market town of Uttoxeter.
The village benefits from its hilltop location, that provides views over the surrounding countryside, and in particular, of the Weaver Hills.
The main part of the village is clustered around the church. The Church of St Lawrence which dates from 1835, is an attractive building and is set back from the road, being reached by a tree-lined drive.
Two of the church bells date from the 16th century, and there are some 14th and 16th-century portions of stained glass.
The village benefits from two excellent pubs: the Robin Hood which is situated on Leigh Lane, and the Old Bramshall Inn, located on the Stone Road, the main B-road through the village.
Another feature likely to be of great interest to visitors is the Strawberry Garden Centre and Tea Rooms, which can be found on the right-hand side on entering Bramshall from Uttoxeter.
A traditional butcher, Sargeant's, can also be found on the main road through the village.
The cast-iron milepost on the Stone Road dates from the 19th century and is listed, as is the 18th-century farmhouse opposite.
Basically a farming community, with the addition of more modern housing, Bramshall can provide opportunities for refreshment and interest to anyone undertaking a tour of this part of Staffordshire.
