Eccleshall Parish Council

Eccleshall is an extensive Parish comprising some 20,000 acres and lies 6 miles to the north west of Stafford. Eccleshall is formed of 4 Wards with a total population of approximately 4,700 – 60% of whom live in the town.

Eccleshall lies in the Sow Valley one of the most picturesque areas of Staffordshire. For many Centuries it was the market town for a large agricultural area and the country home of the Bishops of Lichfield. In the 19th Century it became even more prosperous as an important staging post for coaching traffic in the Chester to London Route. The many and varied small shops in town still cater for the needs of residents and visitors alike.

Housing developments in recent years have helped to maintain the town’s vibrant community. Eccleshall is a well preserved market town with a large number of listed and architecturally significant buildings in the High Street. It is easily accessible and yet retains a charm that many other small towns have lost.

There are the usual groups within the community including an indoor bowls club, Women’s Institute, Wives, Allotments and Historical Society as well as The Ecclian Society – volunteers who organise baskets of flowers in the High Street and Christmas trees. Eccleshall also has a Football Club, Tennis Club, Rugby Club and Cricket Club.

The town has excellent facilities, including doctors, library, primary school, opticians, retail outlets, restaurants, take-aways and 7 public houses, most of which serve food. The Community Centre is well used and hosts a variety of activities including a Day Centre and Pre-School.
