The main hub for bus services in the area is Hanley Bus Station. From there you can catch the number 18 or 118 to Stockton Brook, Endon and Leek. Other useful services from Hanley include:
3: Baddeley Green, close to Stockton Brook locks via Milton
16: Cheddleton and Leek (the long way around!)
32 and 32a Kingsley Holt - Cheadle
Clowes Coaches run services 234, 235 and 236 between Leek and Cheadle via Kingsley Holt, Froghall and Ipstones. Each of the three services operate different routes and infrequent times between Kingsley Holt and Ipstones but together give between a one and half to two hour service through the day.
Most local bus timetables may be found on the First Group website. The 118 is operated by D&G Coach and Bus on contract to Stoke-on-Trent Council who also have a bus information website. Another useful site for the whole area (including the Clowes services in the Froghall) area is Traveline.
