Eccleshall Town Information

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

One of the prettiest country market towns in this part of the world, Eccleshall lies in the valley of the River Sow and was mentioned in the 11th century Domesday survey. Its restored castle has been transformed into a house and the area still clings to its historic heritage, boasting many more fine old buildings. During the 16th century it was the seat for the Bishops of Lichfield. For hundreds of years it was noted for glass making. The tombs of five bishops can be found in the Holy Trinity church which dates to the early part of the 12th century.
