Pattingham & Patshull As It Is Now

 

The parish of Pattingham and Patshull is an attractive rural area situated in the South Staffordshire countryside approximately 8 miles from Wolverhampton and 10 miles from Bridgnorth.

 

Though dormitory housing estates have filled out the village, but have not hugely altered the centre of the village. The outlook is still of fields and woodland with views towards the Wrekin Hills.
 
Farming still dominates the landscape and the surrounding countryside. The natural beauty of the area is appreciated by the local community who are keen to preserve the rural outlook and would resist significant development of the green belt.
 
The total population of the parish is 2229, according to the 2001 census, with over 90% living in Pattingham village.
 
Pattingham village supports a number of local shops including a family butcher, an ironmonger, a hair salon, men’s and ladies outfitters, a flower shop and a general store, which incorporates the Post Office.
Painting classes are held in the village hall, there is a thriving drama group as well as a village choir.
Other facilities include the playing fields, football pitches, tennis courts, a children’s play area, St. Chad’s First School, the Parish Church and also two pubs.
 

Brief History of Pattingham & Patshull

 

The parish of Pattingham and Patshull, prior to being included in the district of South Staffordshire, was included in the Seisdon Rural District.
 
In the past the village was nicknamed “the Damson Village” after the many damson trees that were grown in the area to produce vegetable dye used in the production of the old paper sugar bags.
 
Until recently the community was predominantly engaged in agriculture but now, like many rural villages in Staffordshire, it has become a dormitory village for commuters to the industrial West Midlands.
