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