History

The historic County Town of Stafford offers a unique Town Centre experience; it has an abundance of shops, from the major high street retailers to the niche independent stores that offer you something that little bit different.

The Elizabethan Ancient High House in the town centre is the largest timber-framed town house in England. It is now a museum with temporary exhibitions. Stafford Castle was built by the Normans on the nearby hilltop to the west in about 1090, replacing the post-Conquest fort in the town.

 

Property

Within and outside of the town centre you will find a mix of traditional terraced housing over the years more modern developers have changed the landscape. Some of the major developers have brought their popular designs and made modern estates of affordable housing. This has been interspersed with more bespoke developers who have carved out a more of a niche market in terms of design and atmosphere.
