Uttoxeter in Staffordshire is an old historic Market town with a population of around 12,000. Close to the River Dove it is located near Stoke-on-Trent, Lichfield and Derby. It is probably most known for its association with JCB, the manufacturer of construction equipment whose headquarters are in Rocester nearby.
Uttoxeter is close to Alton Towers and the Peak District so this places it en-route for tourist traffic heading in that direction. The racecourse is also a major attraction which brings visitors to the town.
