Aerial Force in Tamworth
Aerial Force are happy to provide the people of Tamworth with our high-quality installation and repair service for satellites and aerials, in addition to providing CCTV technology. We love to work in some of the UK’s thriving towns, and Tamworth is no exception.
The historic town of Tamworth lies approximately 14 miles north-east of Birmingham and is close to a number of counties including Warwickshire and Staffordshire. Tamworth is a market town, keeping hold of its traditional values and industries, whilst maintaining a pleasant, community atmosphere.
The name Tamworth, comes from the River Tame – the river which runs through the town. As of 2011, Tamworth had a population of approximately 76,000 people – the majority of whom will require satellite and aerial installation or repair at some point in their lives! The large population makes Tamworth the second largest settlement area in Staffordshire, behind Stoke-On-Trent.
Tamworth’s history dates back to the Roman times, when the ‘Coritani’ tribe were situated in or near to Tamworth. Tamworth was set up next to the Roman Road, now in Watling Street. When the Anglo-Saxons from Germany came to Britain, they set up camp in an open meadow that was located next to the river Tame. The Anglo-Saxon group called themselves the ‘Tomsaete’ which translates as ‘tame-settlers.’ Tamworth was known as the ‘royal centre’ and was under rule by King Penda.
During the medieval years, an 11th century Norman castle was built in Tamworth – a castle that remains to this day! Later on, during the middle ages, Tamworth was known as a small market town, and a market still takes place in Tamworth. The castle and the market are clearly important parts of Tamworth’s heritage, and the people of Tamworth have been successful in retaining the traditions of the past.
Tamworth’s resilient history can also be demonstrated by looking at how quickly they recovered from a huge fire that burnt large parts of the town in 1345. The town quickly reinforced itself, and grew in size afterwards. More disasters threatened the survival of Tamworth in the 16th and 17th century when the town was hit with instances of the plague, but each time the town reinforced itself and grew. Tamworth has clearly had its share of disasters, and know how to defeat the odds with their resident’s never-say-die attitude!
During the 18th and 19th centuries, as with many of the UK’s largest towns and cities, Tamworth grew exponentially. This was largely due to the Industrial Revolution, and Tamworth’s part in this was concerned with the growth of the coal mines and also the link with the canal network. Tamworth’s population grew substantially and they had the first council houses to be built in Tamworth were done so in 1900.
