Our official address is Marshes Hill, Brown Edge. Marshes Hill, a local nature reserve is a site of biological interest. It is the only remaining part of the old healthland that was once common in the area before agriculture and cultivation. It is also a good vantage point for enjoying the panoramic views.

Despite boundary problems there are more than enough benefits to compensate for the occassional hassles and frustrations. We have plenty of space and the pleasant Greenway Bank Country Park almost on our doorstep. The paths around Knypersley reservoir (which provides water for the Trent and Mersey Canal) and the Serpentine pool provide ideal place for a pleasant walk or a short jog. Ideal for a stroll before or after Sunday lunch this is a very popular place for local people.
