Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Great Chatwell is a small village in the county of Staffordshire, England. It is located 1 mile north-west of Blymhill on the border with Shropshire.The name presumably derives either from nearby St. Chad's well at Chadwell or from the Old English for 'Ceatta's well or stream'.The village contains a number of notable buildings. A white cottage was formerly a telephone exchange, reputedly the last manual exchange in England. Opposite the Red Lion public house is the former Cock Inn, the back wall of which is ancient and thought locally to have once formed part of a monastery. Beside this is the grand 19th century arched entrance to Chatwell Court. A short distance to the north-east of the village can be found the well-preserved remains of a brick kiln. At the south of the village are the sheds of a substantial factory farm.show more
