Pattingham is a village in the civil parish of Pattingham and Patshull, South Staffordshire, near the county boundary with Shropshire. Pattingham is seven miles west of Wolverhampton and seven and a half miles east of Bridgnorth.
Pattingham was originally a farming community but expanded housing in the mid- to late-20th century has led to it becoming a dormitory village for West Midlands conurbation. The population of the civil parish is around 2,200.
The village centre has a parish church and primary school (both St Chad’s), a village hall, and several shops. It has also two public houses, a working men’s club and The Cowshed Restaurant.
The oldest extant portion of St Chad’s Church dates from the late 12th century. The church was rebuilt in the mid-17th century following a devastating fire. George Gilbert Scott extensively remodelled the church in the late 19th century.
Patshull Hall is a mid-18th century Baroque house whose estate was landscaped by Capability Brown. St Mary's, Patshull estate’s church, was built at the same time as the Hall. It was formerly the Staffordshire seat of the Earls of Dartmouth. A hotel is situated in the grounds of the Hall and features a golf course and trout fishing lakes.
A mile outside Pattingham is Rudge Hall, a Grade II listed house, which belonged to the Wight-Boycott family during the 19th century.
