A visit to Penkridge, Cannock.
Due to the cold weather in the winter, I can't go anywhere too far where my old car won't be able to take the icy roads. Penkridge is a small village town near Cannock. Penkridge is a market town or market village. The town name is from the River Penk.
This small village is near to Cannock and Stafford. When drove through this village to visit the market we were surprised that the market is near the railway bridge and there is a church directly behind the market place. This market is only open on Wednesday and Saturday.
It is near to the Cannock Chase and Birches Village Forest. Driving through this beautiful village, the village pub where there was a canal in front of the pub. Single car roads leading through the rolling fields make this quiet village even more beautiful.
We had bypass the market place but luckily I saw the arch bridge for the train over a river. We turnaround back to this market place with free parking. Wandering along the river and trying to find another trek to go over the bridge but it seen they were all fenced up.
We had a beautiful sunset over the bridge but didn't get any photo of this view. So we drove by and follow a dirt road which lead to the private farmhouse right on top of the hill. This small village is so beautiful and it worth a visit.
