Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Etchinghill, also known as Etching Hill, was once a singular village, until it was engulfed by the simultaneous growth of Rugeley, Staffordshire. It is now an electoral district/ward. Etching Hill is situated just over one mile from the actual town centre. Its name historically derives from the large, forested hill on Mount Road - famed for its characteristic ice-age sandstone tip. Etching Hill backs on to Cannock Chase and comprises several housing estates; a recognisable mixture of buildings from the town's early years and numerous modern developments. The area is much-coveted by those looking to move to Rugeley because of its scenic qualities and the presence of two successful primary schools.Etching Hill is a very short distance away from the forest location that has hosted open-air concerts for music acts such as Status Quo, The Zutons, Jools Holland, and UB40. The event, scheduled by the Forestry Commission, was subject to much controversy; certain local residents of neighbouring Slitting Mill harboured fears that the successive performances would be detrimental to the local wildlife and disruptive to the local population.show more
