Eaton Constantine, Shropshire

Eaton Constantine is a small village in the English county of Shropshire. It is located just off the B4380 road, between Atcham and Buildwas, near The Wrekin hill. The theologian Richard Baxter (1615–1691) lived here in his boyhood. His childhood home, now called Baxter's House (a private residence), is a 16th-century timber-framed house in the centre of the village. Near Eaton Constantine are the remains of a Roman vexillation fortress and three marching camps near a bend in the River Severn.
