Stone welcomes canal travellers.
I suppose this is the most iconic view of the canal in Stone, The Star and the lock, it's not a bad pub but does rather trade on its' location.
If you want a real pub The Swan, just up the road, has a much wider selection of real ales, seven on today and the beer festival hasn't started yet.
The Crown is where, it is claimed, the first meeting to put forward the plans for the Trent and Mersey was held.
The High Street, all the shops you need and pedestrianised.
At the top of the High Street is the Crown and Anchor, it just looks totally out of place in a town that is all red brick.
All in all Stone is as pleasant a small town as you will find.
