Abbots Bromley Town Information




Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Staffordshire...


















This delightful small Staffordshire town has its own village green and butter cross and also boasts timber-framed buildings dating to the Elizabethan period. Even older, though, is the ancient Abbots Bromley horn dance, a pagan rite played out each year at nearby Blithfield Hall in which six local men wear reindeer’s antlers while another acts the fool. It is thought to be a Saxon celebration of the granting of rights to villagers to hunt in nearby Needwood Forest.
