Madeley is derived from the Saxon, Madanlieg, meaning 'a clearing in the woods belonging to Mada' (Mada is a female Saxon name).
Madeley is recorded in the Domesday Book as being 2,160 acres (8.7 km2) of wood and 4 plough teams. The first Madeley Old Manor was built by Robert de Stafford, with the local church being founded in 1200. Heighley Castle was built in 1226 by Henry de Audley and ordered to be demolished by Parliamentary committee sitting at Stafford in 1644 to prevent its use by Royalists. Little remains today but some of the ruins are still visible during winter through the vegetation surrounding the area. There is also Madeley Old Hall.
A significant feature and well known landmark of the village is Madeley Mill standing on the dam for the pool. During its history the mill was used for grinding grain but prior to its closure, production was turned over to cheese making. It fell into disrepair before being developed and converted into apartments in the early 1990s saving it from proposed demolition by the local council.
North Staffordshire was a centre for coal mining and the nearby mine at Leycett was known as Madeley under the National Coal Board.Sinking began in the 1880s and the Colliery had five shafts with exotic names: Bang Up, Fair Lady, Clarkes, Harrisons and Woodburn.The Pit closed on 21 September 1957. There is nothing left of the site nowadays and it is used for agriculture.[4

"Not as advertised"
Unclean bedding ,kitchen ,toilets a lot of trip hazards due to uneven flooring throughout the property faulty cooker and other electrics ,rain pouring in when it rained The out door furniture needed … More
30 May 2013
"Required cleaning prior to using plates; one working shower for 11 people"
Not enough plates or glasses for 11 people (has 12 bed spaces, and advertises that sleeps 11). But the owner did arrange for more to be delivered the day we complained about this.
Crockery and cutlery had to be cleaned before use.
Cobwebs and dirty windows
Photos don't reveal that there isn't anywhere that 11 people can sit at a table to eat together.
One bathroom's shower was too weak; the other sprayed water out of the bath. DIfficult to get 11 people through one shower in the morning.
Plenty of parking.
The property had over 17 plates and bowls. Party did not complain of anything on arrival but did after having their party the day after. More bowls and plates were delivered but not needed. The house was videoed before their arrival. The window pain seal had gone and was not dirty and the windows were cleaned. However, the morning of their arrival the weather was windy and wet and the trees do deposit leaves etc on the windows. This cannot be helped. The guests did leave carpets wet due to not using bath mats and complained the floor was wet after they showered but I am afraid this is up to the guests. They also blocked the drains. The second shower is a massage shower attached to the jacuzzi bath and therefore they were mistaken to say it does not work properly. It does not spray like a normal shower but massages. The advert does not state 11 guests can sit round one table and they did not complain until after their party had enjoyed their evening. However, I do not advertise 11 people around one table. It is an architect property and there are several eating areas. I did make sure all the crockery was clean on arrival and therefore I do find it unfortunate that they complained the day after their arrival when the housekeeper can call at any time of their arrival to check any complaint. The house is inspected before arrival and any complaints can be dealt with swiftly.
