It may interest villagers both in Cannock Wood and Gentleshaw that Fibre Optic Broadband is now available, providing speeds up to 40Mbps. The first house to go online has seen a speed increase from 0.5Mbps ADSL to over 16Mbps on the new service. Capacity is limited to 200 homes across both villages. Contact Jason Fernyhough with your BT phone number to check availability and predicted speeds, along with pricing.

Re Harriman land sale The Beaudesert Estate is now a Charity and still very much in existance but no longer a residence. There are many interesting local records held in the Records Office in Stafford and it may be well worth a visit The plans that I have seen show many of the houses and farms and alter depending on that date of the record.I hope that this helps.
