Hollington

HOLLINGTON, a village, in the parish of Checkley, union of Cheadle, S. division of the hundred of Totmonslow, N. division of the county of Stafford, 5 miles (N. W.) from Uttoxeter. It is celebrated for its quarries of building-stone, which is of the finest quality. The stone may be got in blocks of 100 feet and upwards, and many of the churches lately erected in the county have been built with it; thousands of scythestones are made of it annually.
