From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Wetley Rocks is a village in Staffordshire, England, about 2 miles (3.2 km) south of Cheddleton and 6 miles (9.7 km) south of Leek.

The village lies on a small north-south ridge; immediately to the east is the edge of a plateau, and there are rock outcrops of millstone grit along the northern part of the ridgeline; the outcrops have restricted the growth of the village east of the A520. The name of the village comes from these rock outcrops, and from the nature of the pasture land (ley or lea being pasture). A local quarry, part of the same outcrop, provided the stone for many of the original buildings.
