ADDRESS FOR TOMORROWS QUATT RALLY – WV15 6EU. hot & cold drinks available . Please arrive after 7.15 and before 8.15 . Drive safe see you all there!

 

Quatt is an ancient village situated in beautiful South Shropshire countryside on the A442 road from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth.

Even though Quatt is only a small village it is steeped in history. For instance, the name Quatt is thought to have originally come from two sources. Firstly from the Celtic word for wood, ‘Coed’, and also from a Saxon word for farm, ‘Tun’.

These words were conjoined into ‘Coed-ton’, which means ‘Village in the Wood’. The village name gets a mention in Doomsday; it is entered as Quatone. Over the years this was shortened to Quatt.

The village is full of interesting and historical buildings, from St Andrews Church to the Dower House.

St Andrew’s is of more than special interest primarily for the richness and quality of its fittings and monuments in a church that, externally, combines some early fabric, plus a major 1763 brick phase including tower and N aisle walls.
