There is a regular train service between Stafford, Rugeley, Cannock, Walsall and Birmingham. There are also regular services to London (Euston)
Between Colton and Stafford on the A513 is Shugborough Hall (NT) , Lichfield with its Dr. Johnson connections and the beautiful Cathedral lies 8 miles South of Rugeley on the A51.
