Area Guide


Penkhull, just to the east of Newcastle-under-Lyme, calls itself 'a village within a city' owing to the spirit of its residents and its layout - its church and green would not look out of place in a rural setting. There is real sense of community here with lots of regular local events including folk week, Penkhull Jazz and Blues Festival, plays and pantos.

At the centre of Penkhull is the 'Garden Village', built along the lines of the 'Garden City' model of making residential areas more attractive and healthier places to live.

The property market in Penkhull is busy; there are plenty of Victorian terraces, some very attractive larger Victorian villas, flats and apartments. Heywoods is the estate agent of choice in the Penkhull area.

Penkhull is very near the centre of Newcastle-under-Lyme and a short distance from the Royal Stoke University Hospital and the North Staffordshire Medical Institute, making it an ideal location for hospital employees and medical students. The area is also a short drive from Staffordshire University.


Schools and Colleges

There are a number of Ofsted-rated 'Good' primary schools in the area, including The Willows and St John's Church of England schools. St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Primary School is rated 'Outstanding'.

Transport Links

Penkhull is less than a ten-minute drive to junction 15 of the M6 which takes you to Birmingham in the south and provides links to the major cities of the North West.

This provides services to London and Nottingham in around 90 minutes, and Birmingham and Manchester in under an hour; the Stafford service takes around 20 minutes.
