Wood Anemone Links and Credits
Home Home Home

The links and references below all relate to some aspect of the valley, ranging from an in-depth account of the Cheadle Coal Field to pub recommendations (which may go out of date) and terrible poetry. This site contains precious little by way of original research and I think, having spent almost no time pouring over original sources, that it's important to acknowledge the people who have. All the photos on the site are mine but the supporting text includes information gleaned from all over the place.




The Boat Inn The Boat Inn, Cheddleton
The Boat is another favourite for both food and beer. As the name suggests, it overlooks the canal at Basford Bridge, but it's also handy for the Churnet Valley Railway at Cheddleton Station.

The Railway Inn The Railway Inn, Froghall
The Railway Inn is a pub, restaurant and hotel next to Kingsley & Froghall Station. It has had a number of landlords, in recent years, as well as being shut for extended periods. Most recently, back in 2022, the pub was sold to new owners and was being refurbished. By the summer of 2023, however, it had shut again.

The Tavern The Tavern, Denstone
The Tavern is a Marston's pub, handily close to the end of the Oakamoor to Denstone Greenway. Friendly staff and a good pint of Pedigree.

Information points have been erected at sites around the village of Oakamoor, at Froghall Wharf and elsewhere in the valley. These are excellent resources, featuring old photographs of the sites in their industrial heyday with informative supporting text.
