Consall Forge sits on the small but perfectly formed Caldon Canal. A canal that in its day brough limestone down from the hills into the industrial heartland of Stoke on Trent.

Set alongside Consall Nature Park, today Consall Forge is a beautiful location to start enjoying your local waterways. Take a picnic and spend a relaxing afternoon at the canalside, keeping an eye out for passing boats and local wildlife. Go for a stroll and explore the local history, including the  Churnet Valley Steam Railway. Follow one of the nature park trails, or try your hand at fishing, canoeing, or even pond dipping!
