About Penkhull


Penkhull is a beautiful village very near to the City of Stoke on Trent. The village has a very friendly atmosphere and warmly welcomes visitors to come and eat, drink and enjoy our company at any of the pubs or community centres in the area.

Taken from the wiki:

Penkhull is a township within Stoke-upon-Trent in the city of Stoke-on-Trent in the English county of Staffordshire. The Domesday Bookrecords it as two hides of land in the Hundred of Pirehill and that it was held by Earl Algar.[1]

Penkhull was developed by Herbert Minton as a dormitory suburb of Stoke. The ecclesiastical parish was created out of the parish of Stoke in 1844[2] when the church of St. Thomas was built by Scott and Moffatt at the expense of the Revd Thomas Webb Minton. The aisles were added in 1892 by Edward Prioleau Warren.[3]

Penkhull is one of 20 or so conservation areas in Stoke-on-Trent (the others including the nearby estate called The Villas). The conservation area includes Grade II listed buildings such as the church mentioned above and the “The Greyhound Inn” public house and restaurant.

The area is steeped in history which we are very proud in sharing.
