Stanton upon Hine Heath is a village and parish in Shropshire, England. The River Roden flows through the village.Author Mary Webb (1881–1927) lived with her parents in Stanton from 1896 to 1902, at house then called The Woodlands, later called Harcourt Manor. Another author, Barbara Comyns Carr (1907–1992), died in the village and is buried in the graveyard of the village church, St. Andrew's. Nearby is the village of Moreton Corbet.Running through the parish is the A53, between Shawbury and Hodnet.HistoryMoreton Corbet CastleThe first castle built at Moreton Corbet was not built from stone, but was most likely to have been a timber building. It was around 1200, that the Castle became a stone structure. The Castle was an impressive build; it consisted of a gatehouse, a keep, high curtain walls surrounding it and unlike most other castle's, was rough triangular in shape.In 1086, at the time of the Domesday Survey, Moreton Castle, and twelve other manors, were held by Thorold of Verley from Roger of Montgomery. Both of his tenants, Hunning and Wulfgeat of Saxon descent, had been allowed to keep their estates as they were pre-Conquest tenants also. However, in 1086, the manor was passed to one of Hunning's Saxon contemporaries, known as Toret.Toret's son, Bartholomew Toret, fell out with King of England at the time, King John, and was thrown into jail. The Castle was passed onto the Norman Richard Corbet of Wattlesborough, when his daughter married him in 1239.
