Armitage is a village in Staffordshire, England on the south side of the Trent and Mersey Canal between Lichfield and Rugeley. Together with the adjacent village of Handsacre, it forms the parish of Armitage with Handsacre.
The name comes from the Middle English Ermitage, meaning 'Hermitage', from a tradition that a hermit lived between the church and the River Trent. It does not appear in the Domesday Book although Handsacre does.
The professional golfer Robert Rock was born in Armitage.
