Some history on Atherstone in the county of Warwickshire
More information on Atherstone to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Atherstone 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 detailed information on Atherstone.
