It is said that the town of Stone gained its name from a marker for the graves of he sons of King Wulfhere who had his two sons killed because of their conversion to Christianity. Nestling alongside the Trent and Mersey Canal in the heart of Staffordshire this old market town can trace its history back to medieval times. Today the present Church of St Michael, erected in the mid 18th century, is said to be on the site of a priory first established here in 1135. In 1251 the town of Stone gained its charter under Henry III to hold a market – a tradition which still holds true today. Stone grew as a town because of the communication links between London and Chester, Stone was a convenient staging post and for this reason many inns with stabling became established in the area. In order to ensure a steady supply of ale a number of brewers were established in the area, and it is from here that “Stone Ale” was first produced. Between the 18th and 19th century Stone was also a producer of shoes, by the late 19th century the town employed around 1,600 people manufacturing shoes and boots. The coming of the canal in the 19th century further contributed to the growth of the town and today the canal is still much used – not for transport of goods but for pleasure. Today Stone still maintains that village feeling which ensures its popularity with both visitors and residents alike.
