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
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.
