Froghall is a village situated approximately ten miles to the east of Stoke-on-Trent and two miles north of Cheadle in Staffordshire, England.

The main feature of the village is the historic Copper factory of Thomas Bolton and sons, now called Bolton Copper. A lot of the factory now stands derelict but a substantial portion is still in use for the production of rotor bars for two large companies who produce generators and motors. The Thomas Bolton Copper works at Froghall,and the closed works in the nearby village of Oakamoor are famous as the world's first Transatlantic Telegraph cables were manufactured and rolled at the Plants. During the Second World War the factories made wiring components for Spitfire fighter planes. The Copper works are the Staffordshire Moorlands last link to the historic Copper Mining Industry that was centered around the nearby Manifold Valley and the famous Ecton Copper Mines. Froghall also sits in the Churnet Valley. A beautiful and relatively unspoilt part of Staffordshire.

The are some excellent and challenging walks in the area, many of which encompass the areas historic development by the Coal,Ironstone,Copper and Limestone Industries.

[edit] Transport

Froghall was formerly served by Kingsley and Froghall railway station, on the North Staffordshire Railway's Churnet Valley line from North Rode to Uttoxeter via Leek. Despite the gradual closure of this line in the 1960s and 1970s[1], passenger trains returned to Froghall in the 1990s after preservation of the line by the Churnet Valley Railway. At the present time, Kingsley and Froghall is the terminus of the railway.

Froghall is the southern terminus of the Caldon Canal. The canal previously ran from Etruria to Uttoxeter (with the section from Froghall to Uttoxeter sometimes known as the Uttoxeter Canal), but does not now extend beyond Froghall.

The A52, which links Stoke-on-Trent with Derby, passes through Froghall.
