Croxton, Staffordshire

Croxton is a village on the B5026 between Eccleshall and Loggerheads. It is notable for having an old windmill. The village church is called St. Pauls. It is likely that the 'Croxton pattern', a variety of blue print pattern used on china plates made in the Burslem pottery in the early 20th century, was named after this nearby village.
