Norbury, Staffordshire

Norbury, Staffordshire

Norbury is a village in the Borough of Stafford, in south-west Staffordshire, England.

It is situated approximately 4 miles (6.4 km) north-east of Newport, just south of the A519 Newport to Newcastle-under-Lyme road, and two miles south-east of Woodseaves.

The village gave its name to Norbury Junction, about one mile to the south-east. At one time (1835), this was a junction between the main Birmingham and Liverpool Junction Canal (later to become part of the Shropshire Union Canal) and a branch stretching south-west through Newport to link to the now-abandoned Shrewsbury Canal.

English poet Richard Barnfield (1574-1627) was born at Norbury.

In October 2010, villagers formed a football team named 'Norbury FC', which plays in the Staffordshire County League.
