Gallery: Staffordshire - Page 2 (Cotton)


5 Images - Page:     1     2  



The landscape and architectural scenes in this gallery, specifically relate to the hamlet of Cotton, within the English County of Staffordshire.

The county of Staffordshire is located in the West Midlands region of England. The county town is Stafford and the largest city is Stoke-on-Trent. Part of the Peak District lies within the borders, to the north west, and to the south of the county, part of the National Forest is also included.

Page 2, is dedicated to the hamlet of Cotton, which is near to the Staffordshire village of Alton. Cotton is a tiny hamlet, set in a very attractive location, with most buildings located along a very narrow single track lane.

The south eastern end of the lane starts at the crossroads with Beelow Lane opposite and the junction is crossed by the B5417 road where Ye Olde Star Inn is located. From there, the winding tree-lined lane, takes one in a north westerly direction and passes by the Faber Catholic Primary School, St Wilfred's Church which was fenced off and was undergoing repairs, St John the Baptist Parish Church, two churchyards and two cemeteries, in the distance can be seen the derelict Cotton College which was also fenced off, a farm, several cottages and houses and lots of woodland which includes Star Wood and the Cotton Dell Nature Reserve.

After approximately two miles the lane passes through Upper Cotton, where there are several more cottages and a few farms. From Upper Cotton, the lane leads northwards to the main road, which is the A52.

This series of photos of Cotton was shot during two visits to the area in early 2010, at the request of a client in Florida, who had traced her husband's ancestors back to this area in the UK. The photos were placed temporarily, in an obscure folder on this website for selection by the client. Surprisingly, they have continued to be found by visitors and there has been a great deal of interest, on a weekly basis, ever since. So instead of being removed, they will be gradually transferred, to feature here in a properly designed gallery, where they will be available to everyone. The photos will be sorted, mainly into the order that I came upon the various subjects, while walking along Cotton Lane in a north westerly direction. The photos will be added gradually, when time permits.
