365 great things about Staffordshire - Staffordshire is home to the highest village in Britain
Staffordshire is home to the highest village in Britain, Flash.
The village, in the Staffordshire Moorlands, stands at 463 m (1518 ft) above sea level.
This record was confirmed in 2007 by the Ordnance Survey after Wanlockhead in Scotland also claimed the record.
The BBC's 'The One Show' investigated the case in a bid to settle the argument and Flash was confirmed as the highest.
The highest point in Staffordshire is Cheeks Point.
