Once this quiet place was a centre of industry...!
Froghall, on the Caldon Canal a few miles north of Cheadle, was an area famous for processing copper as well as limestone.
You can still see the old wharves-type buildings (in pic) by the canal, from where the industrial barges would pick up their limestone load. It looks quite incongruous, now that it's been turned into something of a beauty spot here. But, in fact, older folk still call this area Froghall Wharf.
