Pattingham is a semi-rural village set in the South Staffordshire countryside, seven miles from Wolverhampton and 10 miles from Bridgnorth.
Though the dormitory housing estates have filled out the village they have not hugely altered the centre of the village, the outlook is still of fields and woods towards the Wrekin Hills and farming still dominates the landscape.
There is a row of shops including Post Office, ironmongers and hairdressers. The village hall holds painting classes, keep fit and a senior citizens' club and there is a working man's club in the village centre. There are local playing fields including tennis courts, football pitch and childrens play area with fishing, golf and leisure centre facilities nearby at Patshull Park.
A children's fun day, village fete and dog show is held each year in the summer and a flower and vegetable show with a barbecue in the autumn. The drama society present several productions each year in the village hall and visiting bands put on concerts in the village hall and church.
