Being able to enjoy everything the surrounding area has to offer is another reason why this particular development of new homes in Newcastle-under-Lyme is highly sought-after.
The hamlet of Baldwin’s Gate is steeped in idyllic rural charm, yet still offers plenty in terms of amenities. What’s more, you can find many notable listed buildings including the nearby Methodist Chapel and Station House which both date back to the mid-19th century. The local railway station, which opened around 1850, is also believed to be one of the first to despatch pottery all over the country.
What takes centre stage though is the historic Sheet Anchor public house. Built by Admiral Roland Cavenagh-Mainwaring of Whitmore Hall in 1838, this is one of only a few UK public houses to retain its original name to this day.
Further afield, you can also find Whitmore Hall itself. This manor house residence with its warm, red brick facade along with its striking lime tree avenue, nearby lake and surrounding parkland, creates a beautiful statement of rural grandeur and elegance.
