Long ago, in Saxon days, lived a young woman and her name was Werburgh. She was born a princess, daughter of the powerful king of Mercia, King Wulfhere, and after she died she was made a saint. But have you ever heard of her?
Werburgh has strong associations with North Staffordshire and we want to find out more about her, and tell her remarkable story.
We hope you will join in and help us over the coming months...
