Thank you for visiting our website. Hints Village and the Canwell Estate comprise the Parish of "Hints with Canwell" in the South of the County of Staffordshire, England. The Parish is rural and some areas have been deemed Conservation Areas of outstanding beauty. At the 2011 census the parish had 355 residents, of which 16% were aged under 18, and 21% aged over 65.
Our small but active population has retained a community spirit, and our local halls see regular social and other events. Annually Canwell hosts one of the largest agricultural and country shows in the Midlands.
