Inspiration

The Village of Albrighton, once the Borough of Albrighton dates back to Saxon times when Albric or Alberic settled here after the battle of Wednesbury in 591. Albric and his followers formed a tun.   In the vast forest of Brewood they found a suitable site with streams, fertile ground and neighbouring tuns growing nearby, e.g., Ryton, Donington and Omphreston.  After three hundred years, there were 180 acres cultivated in strips, together with grazing for sheep.   Algar and Godhit were named as the last leaders in the tun.

After the Norman Conquest the Saxons had fled and William the Conqueror gave Shropshire to Roger de Montgomery who in turn allocated Albrighton to Normannus Venator, a forester. Although recorded in the Domesday Book as cultivated land which had been left fallow, there were soon 480 acres under cultivation.   Most produce went to the Lord of the Manor; the surrounding forest was preserved for the King.

Albrighton was granted Borough status in 1303 on account of its remoteness from Shrewsbury; this was renewed in 1662 but seems to have lapsed by the nineteenth century. A mace confirming its Borough status was discovered in 1948 and bought by the village from Sotherbys.

During the period up to 1500 Albrighton Manor was held by the following families; Pitchford, Tregoz, de la Warre, Troutbeck and Talbot.    The last named, after distinguishing himself in a battle in France received the Earldom of Shrewsbury.    In 1517 Sir John Talbot was in granted permission to build a watermill for grinding corn, he then created the pool, now part of the Donington Nature Reserve, by damming up the Humphreston Stream, putting in a weir and sluice gate to get a constant supply of water for the mill. The mill was in the area now known as Clock Mills.

The Earls of Shrewsbury were the biggest landowners in Albrighton, finally selling up all their estates in December 1918, their estates totalled 1,910 acres. Early in the 1600’s button making was an industry in the manor.   Then in the 1700’s clock makers moved into the Clock Mills area and John Baddley, the most famous installed the first clock at St. Mary’s Church in about 1790. Albrighton Church dates back over 800 years, the tower having been built in the 12th century. The height was raised in 1549 to accommodate the bells; there was a low nave, the width of the tower.   The chancel and south aisle were added in the 13th century.

A big restoration took place in 1852/1853 when the nave and south aisle were restored and the north aisle and porch added. The lych gate was erected in 1936, then in 1993 there were again significant restorations, the present church clock was given in 1872 and is a Joyce clock of Whitchurch.

Safety

Never leave a burning candle unattended. Burn candles out of reach of children and pets. Always leave about 10cm between burning candles. Do not burn candles on or near anything that may catch fire. Only burn this candle on a level, heat-resistant surface. 

Never burn this candle for more than 4 hours at a time. Do not allow the flame to touch the glass. On the first burn, always burn for 3-4 hours to ensure an even melt pool. Ensure the wick is upright, above the wax, and central before the wax sets. Always trim the wick to 5mm before lighting to avoid smoking and damage to the glass. Glass may become hot during use. Extinguish when 5mm of wax remains and do not relight.
