Area Guide

Newcastle-under-Lyme is around 15 minutes' drive away, Crewe takes around 25 minutes. Madeley Heath is just on the Newcastle side of the M6, which is around a mile and a half away.

This characterful village features many pretty, older, cottage-style properties, both large and small, as well as smaller modern houses and bungalows and ex-council properties. Heywoods estate agent has a range of property on the market in Madeley and Madeley Heath.

A significant feature and well-known landmark of the village is Madeley Mill which stood on a dam that formed Madeley Pool. The mill fell into disrepair before being developed and converted into apartments in the early 1990s, saving it from demolition and keeping the unique character alive in this attractive village.
