Longnor, Staffordshire Moorlands. A Peak District village which stars in Peak Practice
Longnor, Staffordshire Moorlands, is a Peak District village famous for its role as a location in the TV series Peak Practice
|Longnor is a former market town which lies close to the upper section of the River Manifold. The village clusters around the cobbled market place with its pubs and former market hall, now a craft centre. The front of the market hall lists the tolls charged for making sales here - four pence to sell a sheep, for instance. |
The former market place is surrounded by pubs and hotels of which the largest is the Crewe and Harpur Arms, named after the family of local landowners. There is also a village store.
In recent years the village has gained a certain fame through being the location for the filming of much of the TV series 'Peak Practice'. Afficionados can readily identify Dr Tom's House, The Beeches Surgery, The Black Swan and other landmarks of the series around Longnor village.
