More information on Tatenhill to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Tatenhill from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on Tatenhill. There is information on Staffordshire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"Furiously riding a push-bicycle to the danger of the public was the charge against William Noel Allsopp, labourer, of Brookside Cottage, Tatenhill, before Mr. H. G. Nadin and Miss Holland, at Burton County Police Court on Tuesday. Inspector Jackson said that it was usually motorists who were summoned for the protection of cyclists, but it was only fair that motorists should also be protected from cyclists. Nellie Green, of Tatenhill, said about 9.50 p.m.. on June 23rd, when she was walking into the main road at Pool Green she saw defendant riding rather fast down Callingwood Lane with a tennis-racket in one hand. At the corner a motor-car swerved to the right to try to avoid the cyclist, who, however, collided with the car, went up in the air, fell on the bonnet of the car, and appeared to slip off the side into the ditch. She noticed later that defendant had a cut on his hand and a bruised leg. Defendant had not his brakes on when he passed her and was going at a dangerous rate. Nellie Renwick, The Croft, Tatenhill, who was walking with the last witness, said defendant was riding too fast. William Edward Green, of Newton Road. Burton, the motorist gave evidence. P.C. Lawrence said defendant told him he was going from eight to ten miles an hour. On approaching the corner he rang his bell. He suddenly saw the motor-car, and went over to his left side, but the motorist swerved at the same time. Defendant was found guilty and fined 2s. 6d., with 30s. witnesses' allowances."
