Eccleshall is a proud and thriving rural community that can trace its story back to the Domesday Book. The ruins of Eccleshall castle pay testament to a time when the town was fought over by great armies, or when it was home to powerful bishops.
Once a centre for glass making and leatherwork, Eccleshall became a popular stop during the coaching age, developing a reputation for hospitality that is still reflected today with its reputation for fine artisan food and drink.
