Kings Bromley is an attractive village in Staffordshire that sits on the A515 that runs from just north of Lichfield all the way through Staffordshire and up into the Peak District and the town of Buxton. The village is surrounded by open countryside and just to the north runs the River Trent. North of the village is largely unbroken countryside apart from the small villages of Yoxall and Hamstall Ridware until you reach the historic village of Abbots Bromley, and beyond that the town of Uttoxeter. Burton upon Trent is around eight kilometres to the north-east of Kings Bromley, with the city of Lichfield due south by around five miles. The town of Rugeley is just a few miles west of the village along with the villages of Armitage and Handsacre whilst beyond Rugeley is Cannock Chase and the county town of Stafford. The village lies at the crossroads of the A515 running north-south and the A513 that takes motorists westwards to Rugeley or in the opposite direction to Tamworth. The M6 can be joined just the other side of Stafford or the M42 on the far side of Tamworth to provide swift access to the Black Country, the eastern side of Birmingham, and the Birmingham International Airport. There are several stations a short distance from the village that provide connections to the commercial and shopping hub of Birmingham and elsewhere. From Rugeley Town and Rugeley Trent Valley it is rail journey of around fifty-five minutes to Birmingham New Street in the city centre, or forty minutes from Lichfield City or Trent Valley. Heading to Stafford from Rugeley takes just over ten minutes. There is a strong community spirit amongst residents of the village. You will find community groups dedicated to many group activities including fishing, sailing, weight training, bowling, and snooker. There is also a theatre group, a gardening guild, horticultural society, history group, voluntary car group, a woman’s institute and the Swifts Football Club based in Kings Bromley. What was once a wharf on the Trent and Mersey Canal is now a popular marina just to the south of the village. Kings Bromley was originally an Anglo-Saxon settlement and a power base for the earls of Mercia. The 11th century earl Leofric, whose wife was Lady Godiva, maintained a home where the village now stands. Following the Norman Conquest of 1066 the estates surrounding the village came into the hands of William the Conqueror, hence the name of Kings Bromley. Over the following centuries the village has largely remained a small, rural community. The village church was built in the 12th century and many historic buildings remain such as the Almshouses and what is now the Richard Crosse Church of England Primary School. The property types available range from grander period houses to more affordable modern homes that have been carefully designed to retain the original character of the village.
