Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Church Eaton is a small English village in the west of Staffordshire lying some 6 miles (10 km) southwest of Stafford, 6 miles (10 km) northwest of Penkridge and just 4 miles (6 km) from the Shropshire border. It lies in gently rolling dairy farming countryside. The hamlet of Wood Eaton lies to its northwest.The village church dedicated to Saint Editha largely dates from the 12th century, having a square west tower with a spire, a large '7-light' east window of fine stained glass depicting scenes from the life of Christ, and "the broken and repaired remains of an elaborate early 12th century font, closely related to the font at Bradley, and that at Lilleshall, except that the font at Bradley is in better condition. Pevsner also states that these fonts were all made at Gnosall.show more
