Brewood is a very attractive village with a wealth of historic buildings clustered around the old Market Place. Many are timber framed and display a variety of building techniques and styles. Even the later 17th and 18th century houses with grand facades are, in many cases, based around older timber framed cottages. Today the village is a popular place to live, proud of its heritage and attractive to visitors, particularly tourists cruising along the Shropshire Union Canal.
Coven is also a picturesque village. At the heart of the village are the Methodist Chapel and St. Paul's Church with its renowned nave and bell-turret dating from 1857. Coven is self-contained with a local chemist, post office, butcher, green grocer, baker and newsagent.
There are good bus links from both Brewood and Coven to Wolverhampton and Stafford, with good links to Telford and Birmingham via the motorways.
