Tamworth is a large, historic market town in Staffordshire. Tamworth was once the capital of the ancient Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia. These people called their early settlement Tomworðig and it is from this name that the modern Tamworth gets its name. The original name means an “open meadow by the (River) Tame.” By 1319 Tamworth had a charter allowing it to hold a market and later in 1337 it was also given charters to hold two annual fairs. The original Tamworth castle was built by the Normans in the motte and bailey style, although this was rebuilt in successive historical periods. It is famous for its ghosts, those of a Black and a White Lady.
