Talke  Staffordshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Talke like this:

TALK-O'-TH'-HILL, a township-chapelry, with a village, in Audley parish, Stafford; 1¼ mile SW of Kidsgrove-Junction r. station, and 5 NNW of Newcastle-under-Lyne. It has a post-office under Stoke-upon-Trent. Real property, £15,660; of which £10,030 are in mines. Pop. in 1851, 1,973; in 1861, 2,406. ...

Houses, 501. The increase of pop. arose from extension of coal mining and iron-manufacture. The hill indicated in the chapelry's name commands a view over parts of nine counties. There is a sulphurous spring. The living is a p. curacy in the diocese of Lichfield. Value, £138.* Patron, the Vicar of Audley.
