Great Chatwell, Staffordshire

Great Chatwell is a small village in the county of Staffordshire, England. It is located 1 mile north-west of Blymhill on the border with Shropshire. The name presumably derives either from nearby St. Chad's well at Chadwell or from the Old English for 'Ceatta's well or stream'. The village contains a number of notable buildings. A white cottage was formerly a telephone exchange, reputedly the last manual exchange in England.
