Penkridge may appeal to retirees

Penkridge may appeal to retirees

The small village of Penkridge could be the perfect destination for anyone looking to enjoy their retirement in peace and quiet.

Staffordshire is well-known for its great community spirit and Penkridge is one of the region's most popular market towns.

It still holds a regular market, so every Wednesday and Saturday locals gather to buy a range of goods, including produce sourced within just a few miles.

The town centre is also, rather quirkily, still home to a set of stocks and showcases the rich heritage of the town.

In terms of leisure, Penkridge is also home to a number of pubs, including The Horse and Jockey, The Littleton Arms and The White Hart Inn.

People looking for property for sale in Penkridge may also want to check out the local cafes and restaurants in the area, which serve a wide range of cuisine.

One of the major highlights for the town is the annual Christmas funfair and market.

Taking place on the last Friday of November, the festive event is held in the centre of the town and welcomes around 100 different stalls between 5pm and 9pm.

There is a whole host of food, crafts and entertainment that is perfect for the Christmas season.

Visitors will be able to choose from a number of local delicacies like savoury scotch eggs, cheeses, jams, chutneys and preserves.

Stalls will also be selling a range of takeaway food, including hog roast, jacket potatoes, pizza and doughnuts.

Anyone looking for gifts for family and friends should consider visiting the craft exhibitors, with everything from handmade jewellery, gifts and handbags to wooden toys available to buy.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801762990-ADNFCR
