The study area is located about 2 miles west of Eccleshall and 9 miles northwest of Stafford, close to the Shropshire border. Situated along the main road from Eccleshall to Bishop’s Offley, the area is centred on the settlement of Walk Mill, an attractive, linear hamlet which takes its name from the old water mill. It is a predominantly rural area with a mix of agriculture and woodland. The older houses are built with sandstone or red Staffordshire bricks.
To develop the study, originally a House History of Stores House, into a One-Place Study of Offley Hay.
