Our nearest town is Cheadle in the Staffordshire Moorlands.
Granted it's market charter in 1250 by King Henry III and featuring work by
Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin ( 1812-1852 ) who is arguably the greatest British architect and designer of the nineteenth century. Some of his finest works include the interiors of the House of Lords, the church of St Giles in Cheadle and his home The Grange in Ramsgate. He is famous for bringing the Gothic Revival to new levels of intensity and significance in this country and beyond. His links with the town and this area are built on the friendship he had with the Earl's of Shrewsbury who then owned Alton Towers.
Pugin worked on re-furbishing the Towers before the Earl engaged him to design and build a new church for the Roman Catholic community, St Giles.Work started on the church in 1841 and was completed in 1846.
Millstone Art & Antiques workshop is situated in the historic village of Lower Tean on the A522 midway between Uttoxeter and Cheadle and set amidst the wonderful countryside of the Staffordshire Moorlands.
Since the romans settled here by the little river Tene nearly two thousand years ago the area around the villages have been a hive of industrial development. From iron smelting, flint milling to the more recent and modern textiles industry of the sixteenth century our little village has seen it all.
Now it is mostly agriculture that supports the area together with JCB Excavators and Alton Towers. Though quieter since the building of the A50 by-pass in the nineties and the loss of our village shop, we are still surrounded by the beauty of the Staffordshire Moorlands and need only to take a short drive to be in the midst of the beautiful Moorlands and the Derbyshire Dales.
