Staffordshire’s county town of Stafford is relatively small by county town standards, with its population of just over 50,000; in fact Stoke-on-Trent, Tamworth and Newcastle-under-Lyme are larger. That said, Stafford is at the centre of a cluster of towns whose populations total over 120,000. Stafford is located on the M6 and is about half way between Stoke-on-Trent and Birmingham, each of which is approximately 14 miles (22 km) distant.
The town’s history is varied and well documented to the fifth century, and the eleventh-century castle stands to this day. Stafford used to have a long tradition of shoemaking, which sadly died out in the latter 20th century. It was also a major railway hub until the reforms of the 1960s led to the closure of the Stafford & Uttoxeter Railway and the Shropshire Union Railway, and with them Stafford became a relatively normal through line between Crewe and Birmingham and London.
Occasionally, jobs become available in Stafford, as it is a relatively populous region and some major manufacturing plants are found there. The electrical engineering giant Alstrom, which makes huge electrical transformers, is in the middle of the town, and Bostik and Littleworth (diesel engines) have large sites here; there are also a few trading and industrial estates and a sizeable shopping centre. Being the county town, the public sector is a large employer, and Stafford also serves as a commuter town for the cities to the north and south.
