      Certainly puts an interesting spin on the facts. I don’ t actually recognize the place being described as Woodseaves in the narrative . It reads like something out of “The Wicker Man” and far removed from my experience of living there for the last twenty years. I guess if it was hard to sell a house before this article, it will be near impossible after it, no matter how good the water supply is! Just be glad when the disruption is over and I can enjoy the fresh air, great views, good friends, happy home and all the other aspects of damnation in this village.

        Hi Jim, not sure why you say it reads like the Wicker Man 🙂 , it only describes the village as an old leather working village which it is and that’s part of its charm … also it mentions the film made by the BBC which portrayed it as an ancient village … good bit of old England…

    The people who run the local facebook page threw me out because i questioned their attitude to writing about traffic problems. small minded individuals who use swearing to illustrate their points

    The person writing this article needs to learn how to spell and get their facts right. Precious Bane was written by a Shropshire author and the village in the book is Woodseaves, Shropshire not Staffordshire!

    How can villages accuse someone of anything? What did they do, call a meeting of their residents and decide collectively that they were going to accuse another village’s vicar of something…? Bizarre.

    Leigh G Banks It’s real, sorry to say … it is supported by quotes from the police and the water board … the local store manager tells the truth too …some of the quotes were taken from the village’s own website! Sadly the has been attacked for publishing the story and its writers insulted – our view is that if people insult and threaten those who are attempting to improve their lives – even if things weren’t going perfectly – then we will publish the story and be damned!
