Penkridge

Penkridge is the largest village in the north of the district and is an important market town resulting from a Charter issued by Henry III in 1244. On Mondays, farmers from the local area buy and sell livestock , and the open air retail markets held on Wednesdays and Saturdays are very popular.

Penkridge boasts many fine historic buildings, including the magnificent St Michael and All Angels Church, and many of the buildings around the village centre are listed as Buildings of Special Architectural or Historical Interest. The village has grown rapidly in the last 30 years, initially from the estates built to accommodate overspill agreements with Wolverhampton and more recently, with large private housing developments.
