Endon is a village within the Staffordshire Moorlands district of Staffordshire, England. It is convert|4|mi|km|1 southwest of Leek and convert|6|mi|km|1 north-northeast of Stoke-on-Trent.

The village is one of only a few outside Derbyshire which practises the ancient custom of Well dressing. A weekend fayre accompanies the dressing of the well at which a local girl is crowned as the Well Dressing Queen. The fayre also includes a contest called "Tossing the Sheaf" where local men compete to see who can toss a bale of straw the highest over a raised bar.

Together with neighbouring Stanley, Endon forms a civil parish.

The local education consists of three schools; St. Luke's Church of England Primary School, [http://www.endonhall.staffs.sch.uk/ Endon Hall Primary School] and [http://www.endon.staffs.sch.uk/ Endon High School] .

Endon was served by a railway station which was opened by the North Staffordshire Railway on November 1, 1867. [http://www.endon.staffs.sch.uk/community/community%20website12.htm Endon Village Website]
