Situated close to the River Manifold (which at this point is little more than a stream flowing through the wide valley) the quiet village of Longnor was once a bustling market town. The imposing Market Hall stands at the head of the village square and has been converted into a craft centre. Above the door, the market tolls are inscribed.

Longnor was home to one William Billinge who died at the ripe old age of 112, after having been through many skirmishes as a soldier. His headstone makes interesting reading.

Longnor is a good centre for walking, giving easy access to Parkhouse and Chrome hills plus the Staffordshire Moorlands, Dovedale and the High Peak region of the Peak District.
