Haughton in Staffordshire is situated on the A518, 4 miles from the county town of
Stafford and 8 miles from Newport in Shropshire. It is a pleasant and thriving village,
surrounded by farmland.
Haughton Parish covers a wide area in the west of the county. It includes 2 commons,
Allimore Green Common and Dale Common, the track of the old Stafford to Newport Railway
line, now the permissive way known as the Greenway (part of Staffordshire County
Council’s Way for the Millennium), numerous farms and the hamlets of Brazenhill,
Whitecross, Shut Heath and Allimore Green.

Haughton Parish Website was set up in 2009, in response to a consultation held during
the Parish Plan process. It included Parish Council business as well as recording
village events for residents and visitors. In 2016 a separate Parish Council website
was set up to take the regular postings of agendas, minutes and other paperwork.
In 2017 the original website was given a non-too-deep face-lift. All the content
is still available - it may just be in a different place. The Tractor Run and The
Olympic Torch can now be found under History. Information on the defibrillators
is now under Amenities.
