Blythe Bridge is a village situated in the Staffordshire Moorlands, although it is effectively a south-eastern suburb of the city of Stoke-on-Trent.

Etymology

Blythe Bridge is so called as it is built around the site of a bridge over the River Blithe (spelt differently to the name of the village itself), a small river which passes directly through the village.

Today

Facilities

It has a high school, sixth form college and library, as well as two public houses: The Black Cock on Uttoxeter Road and The Duke of Wellington. The Smithfield and The White Cock are currently closed. The village also has a bakery, post office, betting shop, newsagents, motor garage, dentist, GP surgery, shoeshop, a few hairdressers, and some fast-food outlets.

Transport

Train services are available at Blythe Bridge railway station, which was opened by the North Staffordshire Railway on August 7, 1848, on the Crewe to Derby railway line. The Uttoxeter Road, a former major motorway link route (M1 to M6) was relieved by the A50 dual-carriageway; first as a bypass that opened in 1975, and then the section to Uttoxeter in 1985. The nearby Meir Aerodrome closed in 1973.
