Penkridge is a market town or village and civil parish in Staffordshire, England. Penkridge has a history since the 17th century as an industrial and commercial centre for neighbouring villages and the agricultural produce of Cannock Chase, strengthening its interpretation as a small town.The wealthiest establishment in Penkridge in the Middle Ages was that of its collegiate church, the church building of which survived the abolition of the chantries and is the tallest structure in the town centre. The parish is crossed towards its eastern border by the M6 motorway and a separate junction north of the M6 toll between the West Midlands and Stoke-on-Trent. Penkridge has a minor stop on the Great Western Main Line railway next to the Grade I listed medieval church. Penkridge Viaduct and the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal are to either side of Market Street and the Old Market Square and are among its landmarks.DefinitionPenkridge is a parish unit within the East Cuttlestone Hundred of Staffordshire. Its boundaries have varied considerably over the centuries. The ancient parish of Penkridge, as defined from 1551 (although it existed in much the same form throughout the Middle Ages), was made up of four distinct townships: Penkridge itself, Coppenhall, Dunston, and Stretton. As a place with its own institutions of local government, the parish was also known as Penkridge Borough.
