Churnet Valley Guide

Churnet Valley Advent Showcase

Each day during Advent a calendar 'window' will open to showcase a local organisation - one of the wintry Churnet Valley scenes will be replaced by something of interest to local people submitted by a local business, group or organisation. We hope you enjoy the selection and will support the campaign by sharing our Advent Showcase.


Explore and appreciate all the characteristics of Staffordshire's precious jewel, the Churnet Valley landscape. These photos and locations showcase the very essence of this wonderful landscape.



There are clues all around that reveal the heritage of the valley. Take a look at the man-made heritage features that have made such an impact and consider how it was then and is now.
