The Village Websmith - Web Design & Services for Abenhall,, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire

Abenhall is a tiny, ancient village in a secluded quiet valley near Mitcheldean. The parish includes the settlement of Plump Hill, on the Mitcheldean to Cinderford Road as it climbs into the high Forest.</p><p>Once part of the Westbury Hundred (which was known as Dene at the time of the 1086 Doomsday book) Abenhall is on the Flaxley to Mitcheldean Road. Originally a mining and iron making centre, it is notable for its 14th century Church of St Michael, which is built of local red sandstone and has excellent contemporary carvings relating to the Forest of Dean's industries. These include a shield bearing the arms of the Freeminers on the west wall and the fabulous mid -15th century octagonal font, that has tools of miners and metalworkers incised on its St Michaels at Abenhall sides.</p><p>St. Michael's Church - originally built as a chapel of ease, the church was expanded in the 14th century to include nave, south aisle and tower. The arms of the Freeminers can be seen on the south side of the tower and on the 18th century font. St. Michael's Church - Abenhall is 1.5 km south of Mitcheldean and is set in beautiful surroundings on the edge of the Forest. Old Parish baptism, marriage and burial registers, from 1596, are stored at the Gloucestershire Record Office.

Welcome to Terrific Tuesday

<p>Named from the Germanic god, Tiw, and associated with Mars. We aimed for the Moon on Monday, so let's ramp it up a notch and set our sights even higher today.<br /><br />Midweek days are great for approaching new opportunities at work. If you are in business to business sales, customers will be over the Monday emergencies and focusing on the things they need to achieve in their own activities. You can help them, and all it takes is for them to know that. Introductory phone calls on Tuesday can be the most productive of the week so use spare time to call some people you don't know yet. There was a time when you didn't know the person who is now your best customer so who knows who you will get introduced to today?</p><p>Introductory calls are frequently ignored as a way of getting business for many reasons. Some people fear rejection. Some are unsure of how to open the conversation. Perhaps identifying the people to call is a problem. Identifying the objectives of the call can be a sticking point.<br /><br />Whatever the reason for not doing this, the rewards that can be gained can make you glad you did it.<br /><br />The Village Websmith's work isn't only about creating effective websites. Through workshops and seminars as well as networking groups, there is help and advice always available to get more value out of promotion via the Internet, telephone, email and press advertising.<br /><br />To find out more, call us on 0203 239 0350 or click in the header of any page to send an email.</p>
