Discovering Our Mercian Heritage

The project was conceived in 2008 by Stone resident David Pott and was initially inspired by the foundational story of Stone about the martyrdom of St Wulfad and St Rufin – a legend which also features St Chad and St Werburgh. It is not without significance that the Staffordshire Hoard is also dated from the late seventh century. This pilgrimage route enables walkers to visit the Potteries Museum and provides an excellent opportunity to highlight the Mercian and Anglo Saxon heritage of the region. It is recognised that it is particularly important that the project ties in with developments concerning the Staffordshire Hoard.
