Community & Services

Whether you are a new or existing resident, or just a casual visitor, we hope you enjoy what we have to offer, and will find the following information useful. Further detail including all relevant telephone numbers will be kept up to date on our two main notice boards adjacent to The Golden Cup and The Crown public houses which are both situated on the main road through the village. We also have a monthly Parish magazine called The Fisherman that is packed with information, and this website.

Saint Peters Church
Church of England (Main Street) At the centre of the village stands this Anglican Church built around 1200 AD. A pleasant walk through to the back brings you to the peaceful cemetery. The Rectory is on the right going up Savey Lane off Main Street.

St Francis De Sales Chapel (Woodlane) Situated on the left, as you leave the village going north on Sudbury Road. Built in 1794, it is one of the 13 chapels in Staffordshire covered by the Catholic Relief Act of 1791.

Woodmill Methodist Chapel
Situated on the north of the village and originally called Saint Pauls, this Chapel was built in 1870. It is one of the few chapels in the counlry with its own graveyard.

Parish Hall
(King Street) Opened in 1905 by the then Lady Burton, this village hall offers a wide range of activities including craft fairs, harvest lunches, concerts, shows and exhibitions. The Parish Council also meets here, and the public may of course attend. The hall also houses monthly meetings of the Gardening Guild and The Women’s Institute, the Art Group, Badminton Club, Aerobics, Yoga, and much, much more. It can also be hired for functions such as weddings, birthdays, lectures, and demonstrations with kitchen facilities available – please see notice boards for contact information. Details of all these activities are to be found in the monthly Parish Magazine.

It also accommodates a wide range of activities such as the Cubs, Scouts, and Guides, the annual village fete, and other community activities.

Public
Apart from the many walking opportunities, you may wish to visit our open spaces. Entering from Kings Bromley and at the southern entrance to the village is the, Milne Holme Pingle. Set alongside the River Trent, this is a 300-year-old meadow on the site of an old Toll House and is being developed with meadow plants and appropriate trees. Further into the village on the right lies Swarboum Meadow, and further again at the bridge on the junction with Townhill Road lies Goose Green, another grassed area beside the River Swarbourn. Ferrers Field offers recreational facilities.
