Welcome to

Our website is full of information about the ancient village of Norton Green - the first village on the River Trent and includes the surrounding areas in and around the Parish of Norton le Moors, Staffordshire.

Best viewed in the latest versions of the popular browsers FireFox & Internet Explorer.

Norton Green village is situated on the most Easterly side of Stoke on Trent on the B5051, bordering the Staffordshire Moorlands in the Trent Valley.

Retaining its charm and character through all the obvious changes of modernisation, Norton Green offers a tranquill retreat from the hustle and bustle of busy modern day life.

Our website is a record of these changes and reflects village life from its early beginnings to what it is today.
