Welcome to the community web-pages for the parish of Caverswall.

The village of Caverswall is an ancient settlement, it is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 and the parish was one of the first to be created in Staffordshire. People from the UK and many other parts of the world can trace their roots back to Caverswall.

The local history pages examine aspects of a rich timeline stretching back over many years and the genealogy pages provide information for those with ancestors who lived in the parish.

Thank you for visiting. The site is being updated and some new pages are planned for 2016. On the 16th of February new pages have been created in the Community Section for the Parish Council. This includes contact details for the members of the council, copies of meeting agendas/minutes and information about income and expenditure for electors and ratepayers.

On the 17th of April an index to a small collection of historical documents has been created in the Local History Section.

Also planned for 2016 is the story of the small community Benedictine Nuns who fled the French Revolution before making their home at Caverswall Castle.  There will also be a major feature about the secret wartime activities at Woodhead Hall near to Cheadle including previously unpublished information and pictures. Woodhead Hall was at the hub of a network of secret monitoring stations supplying information to Bletchley Park and the strategic command structure.
