Market town life is perfect in Staffordshire

Market town life is perfect in Staffordshire

When it comes to moving to a rural setting in the UK, few places will offer better scenery and a nicer outlook in terms of nature than Staffordshire.

With many villages and small towns around, anyone who is looking for a new setting in a small and relaxed community will be guaranteed to find exactly what they are looking for in these more rural settings.

So if the sort of place where everyone knows your name and the local people come together as a small tight knit family is the sort of thing you seek, you could find the perfect option when looking at property for sale in Penkridge.

The small market town is located in the county of Staffordshire and with a population of just 7,000 people, makes it the ideal setting for people looking for a quiet life. The town is so close-knit that many people still refer to it as a village.

The key attraction of many of these smaller settings will be the fact that the community will come together at various times of year to take part on events that link people to the town. Penkridge still follows one such tradition.

One the last Friday of November, the people of the town turn out to take part in a funfair and Christmas market which is held in the centre of the town. This can include up to 70 different stalls and a range of things for children and adults alike to take part in.

Another aspect of Penkridge that will appeal to many people will be the fact that it still maintains its market, one of the most enjoyable aspects of any rural area.

In Penkridge, this takes place every Wednesday and Saturday, allowing people to come and buy a range of local wares and produce.

It also has a number of small pubs and eateries, and for those interested in a little dash of history, a set of stocks located in the centre of the town.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801439394-ADNFCR
