Haywood, Little

HAYWOOD, LITTLE, a township, in the parishes of Colwich and Stowe, S. division of the hundred of Pirehill, union, and N. division of the county, of Stafford, 3½ miles (N. W.) from Rugeley; containing 519 inhabitants. The township has a neat village, near which the river Trent is crossed by the Horse bridge. This bridge anciently consisted of 42 arches, all of wood; but having been long decayed, it was rebuilt in 1833: it is only broad enough to admit foot-passengers and horses.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 7th edition, published in 1848.
