Ingestre village (pronounced Inn-guess-tree) lies in the heart of the Staffordshire countryside on the edge of the Cannock Chase area of outstanding natural beauty.
For centuries Ingestre has been the home of the Chetwynd-Talbot family who in 1858 inherited the earldom of Shrewsbury. It still retains the feel of an estate village and many of the farm buildings attached to the Hall are listed as being of architectural and historical importance.
The Hall itself was built in 1613 by Sir Walter Chetwynd, a Member of Parliament and High Sheriff of Staffordshire. His grandson, also called Walter, built the adjoining Church of St Mary the Virgin in 1676 to a design attributed to Sir Christopher Wren, architect of St Paul's Cathedral and 50 parish churches following the Great Fire of London.
There are many Pubs and restaurants to eat in or take-away and Stafford provides lots of amenities and all the major Supermarkets
