Persimmon Homes


Stone built its prosperity on the Trent and Mersey Canal, which was used for importing materials to the potteries and exporting beer and shoes. While the canal is no longer the hub of industry, it has left behind a handsome town centre graced with a rich array of Georgian residences and a legacy of colourful narrowboats.

Your new home in Stone has a good variety of top rated schools, a playground, beautiful wildlife sanctuaries and enjoyable riverside walks. The semi-pedestrianised high street offers a good selection of chain-stores and independent shops, cafes and restaurants as well as a market every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. Ideally located next to the M6 and with a railway station, your new house in Stone is well located for commutes too.
